"Tornem a la Rambla" was a project of the Col·lectiu Accions Urbanes. This initiative established a device – the walking tour- to promote the debate on the transformation affecting users of the Ramblas, users such as residents and workers, which has caused the disappearance of local commerce, creating a "fictitious scenario, tourist-friendly and marketable" and which has also caused the deterioration of the space as a meeting place.
After the tour, discussion and a sharing of experiences, a participatory process was proposed, to draw up a proposal for new uses, discussing a possible ecological tax and denouncing the violation of rights.
