Funded in the framework of the fourth call of the UIA programme (Urban Innovative Actions) about Urban Security, the ToNite project aims at developing multidisciplinary solutions to manage public spaces and improving the safety perception of residents at nighttime.
This project is carried out with an inclusive approach, involving local community and stakeholders, fostering social innovation and urban regeneration to promote urban security.
Over the past years, Turin tested several social innovation and participatory schemes. ToNite will continue the action of civic engagement launched by the UIA Co-City project, in order to promote the active involvement of residents and stakeholders in carrying out projects which can produce a tangible impact at urban level.
ToNite will be running for three years focusing on the areas surrounding the Dora river. The project will develop research, analysis, participatory activities and co-design actions with the objective of defining interventions on public spaces in a collaborative way. ToNite will offer technical and financial support to activate new services with a social impact and a particular focus on evening and night-time.
