Connect. Project. Empower.
DIPLOCAT is a public-private consortium that projects Catalonia to the world. Created in 2012, it builds bridges between Catalonia and the rest of the world to facilitate the circulation of people, ideas and projects. DIPLOCAT descends from the Patronat Catalunya Món (2007) and previously from the Patronat Català Pro Europa (1982), a pioneering entity in the Catalan relations with the EU.
To listen and to be heard
The basis of good public diplomacy must always be to listen. (…) In public diplomacy, listening means interacting with a foreign audience, extracting information and analysing it with the aim of incorporating it into decision making and lines of action
Nicholas J. Cull, University of Southern California (2019)
Promote Catalonia worldwide
Soft power rests on the ability to shape the preferences of others
Joseph S. Nye, University of Harvard (1990)
Foster training and knowledge
You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
Jane Goodall, primatologist and environmental activist
