The main role of the Donostia/San Sebastián Office of Strategy is to study, promote, create, implement, monitor and manage the city's strategic plan.

Furthermore, the Office of Strategy undertakes any activities, projects and initiatives that it has been assigned as a result of the strategic plan, and places particular emphasis on improving the internal and external image of Donostia/San Sebastián, internationalisation and promoting the city abroad.

The Office of Strategy is tasked with carrying out research and consultancy projects which aim to increase knowledge about the situation faced by Donostia/San Sebastián or the cities and regions in its surrounding area.

The job of the office is to nurture projects that result from the strategic plan, as is the case with the Basque Culinary Center and the European Capital of Culture bid, which are both projects carried out in partnership with other public and/or private agents.


The Office of Strategy aims to make the Donostia/San Sebastián of the future a city where each person can achieve their life goals under the best possible conditions.

As a result, the E2020DSS Strategic Plan addresses the future of Donostia/San Sebastián from the perspective of a city which is cohesive, age friendly and well connected, generating R&D-related wealth and becoming an international leader in science and technology and activities linked to culture and creative economy. An open, dynamic and welcoming city, where life and enjoyment is worthwhile and which is a model of sustainability from an environmental, social and economic perspective.
