Safely Connected: Sustainable Common Accessibility of Lively Downtowns for Healthy People

Safely Connected collaboratively develops and tests the relaunch of local economy and urban life, with the pedestrianisation of the city-centres and the strengthening of the community sense as vectors of urban resilience. A series of flexible physical and digital tools will be developed in this frame, allowing the safe resumption of economy and urban life and generating a shift in favour of sustainable modes of travel.
