(Barcelona, 1964) Degree in Journalism from the Autonomous University of Barcelona and executive post-graduate programme in Management (PDD) from IESE (University of Navarra). I am President and founding member of Sobirania i Justícia (Sovereignty and Justice), a civic society whose purpose is to make a qualitative, rigorous contribution to the momentous political debate we have started in Catalonia on creating our own state. I organized four consecutive editions of the annual international conference “Building a New State” held each autumn from 2011 to 2014 in the La Pedrera auditorium (Barcelona). I am part of the ANC (Catalan National Assembly) where I collaborate with the International Commitee. The ANC is a large network with a bottom-up approach that unites more than 80 thousand people to work towards Catalonia’s independence in a peaceful and democratic way. I am also a member of the Board of Trustees of the Fundació Congrés de Cultura Catalana (Congress of Catalan Culture Foundation), which aims to promote study initiatives that serve to enhance Catalan culture and project it to the outside world. Furthermore, I have been a spokesperson for Reinicia Catalunya (Catalonia Reset) (2015-16). This organization intends to gather all the grassroots initiatives that have already arisen from within civil society in order to stimulate the debate on citizens’ participation and the process of founding a new and better state.
