Follow the first steps of Michelle, a 25-year-old student from Barcelona (Spain), in Marrakesh (Morocco).

She discovers how municipalities in the province of Barcelona joint efforts with municipalities in the Marrakesh-Safi region to strengthen citizens’ participation and promote gender equality at the local level.

In 2020, the cooperation project between the Diputació de Barcelona, together with its municipalities in the province of Barcelona, and IMADEL, and municipalities in the Marrakesh-Safi region won the 1st prize of the PLATFORMAwards.

Extended to 28 Spanish and Moroccan municipalities in a second phase, the project aims to extend its scope of action to the whole of Morocco, focusing on mainstreaming gender equality in public policies and promoting the participation of women in decision spaces. Achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls is one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations.

This movie was produced by Backpack Productions. It is also available with French and Spanish subtitles.
