Building Empowerment and Community Concerns via transport sensors in SCHOOLs

BEC2SCHOOL is an Italian national research project that fosters the development of bottom-up approaches in the decision-making process of sustainable urban mobility solutions. The project will empower citizens, and in particular the youngsters, with tools to collect and analyse data related to traffic and environmental pollution and co-create urban mobility solutions. This will be done by placing Teelram sensors close to the educational facilities. Using this approach, the project will provide a participatory framework to quantify the contribution of transport to environmental pollution, health and safety at a street level.

The project consortium is composed of the Polytechnic University of Bari (leader) and University of Catania (Partner).
