Technician in Socioeconomic Observatory of Osona


She was born in Barcelona and resident in Osona since 1998. She studied Geography at the University of Barcelona, she is particularly interested in the field of applied human geography, and she likes to contribute with an holistic vision in the planning and organization of a territory. After years combining family and work life while working in the field of the international logistic sector, she had the opportunity to participate from the beginning in the launch of the Osona Socioeconomic Observatory five years ago and where she keeps leading the project. 


The project in which I will work is linked to the study of mobility. It involves building a methodological design of the mobility analysis of a territory with urban dispersion. The work includes a part of bibliographic research on similar cases, the definition of the territorial and social scope (segment and collapse), the construction of a sample with territorial representation and the definition of possible collaborating agents. In addition, the objective is to establish an action plan (chronology, contacts and collaborations) and a survey design. We will use the model in Osona but the objective is to build a model of analysis applicable in other territories.

Our stay at Faber

We are Sandra and Sergi, technicians of the Observatori Socioeconòmic d’Osona. We arrived to the Faber residency with a lot of expectations, we wanted to concentrate and work together on a mobility study that we wanted to develop in the Osona region. This challenge arose as a result of diverse studies and reflections with different agents of the territory that marked the needs to develop an integral project that tied the territorial reality of the region. The reason why we chose to go to the Faber residency was precisely, on the one hand, to disconnect from the most mechanical dynamics of everyday, we could focus on this project, and on the other hand, to share experience with other people to enrich our vision of the project.

The first impression we had was quite nice, since unlike what we expected, more than disconnecting, we connected and shared meeting places with other residences. That allowed us to acquire different points of view about our work. The environment to work also invited to go to the Fageda forest to get full of ideas after submerging in this natural place. The intensity of the discussions was combined with the tranquility of the area, the warmth of its restaurants, streets and squares of the city of Olot.

We were able to finish our mobility project, we managed to break the routine dynamics to be able to deepen into a stay of inspiration, debate and joint work. We recommend the experience, because we work hardly and we meet very interesting people.
