Night is not only time, it is also space. Space to bond, build, create, experience and celebrate the cities we inhabit, together. The night opens up many unexplored possibilities in the management of public spaces and all over the world new policies and models of night governance, community building, innovation and resilience are being tested, which concern the management of public places and green spaces, but also the economy, culture and society, young people and, of course, urban safety.
With the aim of sharing ToNite’s experience and discussing ideas, policies, good practices and innovation perspectives implemented by cities around the world at an international level, ToNite will participate in the Montréal Night Summit 2023 – Nox Spatium. This is an international event organised by MTL 24/24, a canadian no-profit organisation working on night management, that will take place on the 17th and 18th of May in Montréal and will bring together representatives of cities and local administrations, university researchers, entrepreneurs…
The program foresees a series of conferences and debates on the night and its economy, around the central theme of space and its infinite possibilities linked to the night: architecture, urban planning, commerce, environment, culture, safety, academic research, diversity and inclusion, tourism and community engagement.
See the official website for more information on the event and to read the detailed programme.
The experience of ToNite will be presented by Simone D’Antonio, an expert on innovative urban policies and European projects from ANCI, in the panel entitled “Buona notte: Italian night management in partnership with Anci“, which will be held on the 18th of May at 9:30 (EDT), 15:30 Italian time. This session will be dedicated to the experience of the city of Turin which, through the ToNite project, has directed tested an innovative governance model, which envisaged the creation and promotion of new nighttime activities and services co-created with the local community, the development of urban regeneration strategies and the adoption of technological and innovative solutions to monitor the perception of residents, with the aim of responding to urban safety challenges during the evening and night hours.
