Nine towns will act as headwaters, from where the agents will travel to the rest of the municipalities that are included in their scope of action. Equality dynamic agents will be in charge of working directly with associations and city councils, supporting them at a conceptual or theoretical level on equality. At the same time, they will develop talks, workshops, debates, exhibitions, video forums and a long list of proposals, making them directly at the community level such as associations of women, the elderly, Ampas, the educational community and city councils.
