Grandi novità sul fronte di trafficO2: l’app che premia gli spostamenti sostenibili è approdata anche a Milano e Roma.
Dopo aver ricompensato l’eco-sostenibilità degli studenti palermitani, l’app ha aperto la sfida anche a tutti gli utenti della Capitale e del capoluogo lombardo; non solo agli studenti, ma anche a chi si sposta quotidianamente per andare al lavoro decidendo di farlo rispettando l’ambiente: a piedi, in bici, condividendo i mezzi (auto e moto) e prendendo i mezzi pubblici.
Tre quindi le community in gioco: Palermo Connection, Roma Capoccia e Mia Bela Madunina.
Ogni community partecipa alla propria Sfida Generale e alle sotto-sfide dedicate alla tipologia di mezzo scelto o del percorso fatto, per le quali potrà vincere dei badge, altra novità dell’app.
Gli utenti delle tre communities poi si sfidano nel Campionato Italiano, che premierà l’utente che tra tutte e tre città avrà accumulato più punti: un riconoscimento virtuale ma comunque apprezzabile!
Novità anche tra i premi: per i primi classificati delle sfide di Milano e Roma un volo a/r per Palermo, i gadget firmati trafficO2 per i secondi e terzi classificati.
Per gli utenti di Palermo premi-esperienze offerti da partner dell’associazione: dal laboratorio creativo con Edizioni Precarie al co-working di PMO, dalla lezione di cucina con lo chef Cammarata al corso di stampa 3D del FabLab, le sorprese sono tutte nuove e da scoprire.
È ancora possibile registrarsi e partecipare alla Secret Challenge, che durerà fino al 27 luglio.
Per ogni community è stato predisposto un gruppo di assistenza su Facebook:

The goal of this event, to which the most advanced urban life and communication actors will take part, is the creation of a policy for smart cities seen as an Italian and a European priority. Such a policy will imply a completely new vision of the idea of city, meant as set of fluxes of information and network of relations and communications, both physical and digital, and characterized by the ability of creating social capital, a diffuse welfare, and a better quality of life. New is also the recipe for the creation of this new city, a formula based on participation and qualified collaboration, on the mapping of wide international scenarios, on the construction of a shared new culture that could help transform a valuable project applicable to the whole country into a series of concrete and durable initiatives.
trafficO2 will be present in the area PON Ricerca e Competitività,dedicated to the projects funded in the context of the public competition “Smart Cities and Social Innovation” (here’s the list of the applicants).
It will be a great opportunity to meet, ponder, and discuss Italian and international projects – realized or still in process – in order to create synergies aimed at policies that are sustainable, far-sighted, and able to respond to the citizens’ needs.
In addition, the project will be narrated in a 3-minute pitch during the conference entitled “Smart City umane e sostenibili: condivisione, collaborazione, innovazione comunitaria” to be held Thursday 17 October, from 9.30 am to 13 pm.

This project has transitioned from a university research project to becoming a business proposal for a sustainable repurposing of the territory.
The project – created by the architect prom Puglia Claudio Esposito in collaboration with PUSH – aims to recover, repurpose and revalue the ancient coastal defensive system in Puglia, which includes an infrastructure of 127 towers, constructed between the 13th and 17th centuries, some of which are currently abandoned.
The main focus was on 8 towers in the Gallipoli area, which would be repurposed into meeting centers, fab labs, instructional centers and places for co-working, in which case that span of coastline would be transformed into a sort of “Club Med” for innovators and start uppers, taking advantage of the tourism of the local territory.
The towers would be connected to each other with a route of bike and walking paths and virtually connected by a wireless mesh, which would cover over 40km of coastline with a broadband Internet signal.
The new network will be transformed: from a defense system to a widespread system of slow fruition of the territory and landscape.
A new view of the culture from Salento by implanting on beautiful coastline the growth catalysts that are promoting the innovation process in our Country, to stimulate the citizens of the territory and tourists and give them the instruments to become an active part of the Country.
The project had several partners, including the collaborations with Puglia Region and the administrations of the interested townships: The Hub Bari, iStarter, Istituto Superiore Mario Boella, J.A.N.U.B – which will contribute their expertise in the field.
“The project is a concrete and realistic approach to transform the abandoned coastal towers into centers for innovators and start uppers”.
