In Spain, OCC’s work primarily takes place in Barcelona, particularly in the neighbourhood of El Born, where its main office is located. Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain and capital of the autonomous community of Catalonia, and is considered a diverse and multicultural center in Europe, being home to over 300,000 foreigners from different parts of the world.

Throughout its activities, OCC focuses on creating inclusive communities and opportunities of exchange between local inhabitants and newcomers both from other European countries and from all over the world. In this way, it also facilitates people’s knowledge of the city and its spaces.

Language Lab

In our Language Lab in the heart of Barcelona we offer a wide range of free language classes for members of our NGO (individuals and organisations). Our membership for those who want to follow the classes is only 10 euros per month.

Refugees and migrants can join cost-free depending on their situation, and we also have special subscriptions for companies.

MigraCode Barcelona

Migracode acts as a bridge between the demand for skilled people in the tech sector and people with a migration background who are eager to work in the tech industry. Founded in 2019, we are cooperating with other code schools in Europe to build a large community of companies and students to foster both labor integration as well as social inclusion.


The CodeWomen project of MigraCode supports and encourages female students during their Migracode bootcamp, to work towards their successful graduation as Junior Web Developer. The project was started to address the often difficult position of women in the mostly male tech world, and consists of bi-weekly meetings where our students and volunteers can meet to code, socialise and share experiences and knowledge.
