Team: Beesensor & Optimum
With this project, an app will be developed to straighten the relationship between city stakeholders under the idea of environmental protection and improvement of life quality through better knowledge of local parks and gardens. This app will increase the interaction opportunities of urban population with biodiversity and foster the conservational interests. It will also serve as a tool to take the most from a visit to the park, changing the user experience beyond a simple walk, inviting city dwellers to get to know the most visited places, identify sounds, learn the names of the existing flora and fauna, and overall, delve into unique aspects of each park or garden. ParGarCom will focus on involving local institutions, citizens (neighbourhood associations) and visitors/tourists (adding to the project a ‘smart destination’ flavour).
