Is it possible to better acknowledge and encourage a reflective staging of urban atmosphere by investigating and contributing to design the sonic environment?

What are the related political, social, and cultural implications?

The action intends to advance Urban research for urban policy analysis and design by implementing a participatory and collaborative approach to urban sound design, and sound planning tools oriented to vulnerable neighborhoods and areas undergoing transformation.

In particular, the action aims to demonstrate how the investigation of the sonic environment can support policy analysis and sustain policy design. Furthermore it points at revealing how the use of urban sound installations and sonic intervention can promote social inclusion, and sustainable local development.
