Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona
The summit will be at Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona (CCCB), just off Las Ramblas, in Barcelona. It is a meeting place for dialogue between academia and citizens; a platform for innovation on the part of groups and creators, and a laboratory open to the cultural change underway.
