CITEAIR, CITEAIR II Common Information to European Air

The development of Europe´s urban centres is in many ways linked with the development of sustainable mobility options. Changes in behaviour, economic growth or recession and structure of the population are factors that have an immediate impact on transport and mobility patterns. Cities and regions are the place where the most complex challenges in transport and environment need to be solved.

Air quality has unquestionably adverse effects on human health. Because the dominant source of environmental impacts in most urban areas is traffic, local and regional authorities must find efficient and integrated solutions for their environmental and traffic problems to increase the quality of life for its citizens. The pressure on European cities and regions to implement the related EU regulations on air quality has led to a multitude of initiatives to develop a concrete sustainability perspective, which compromises between environmental quality and economic growth.

However, the absence of a common approach for the implementation of these regulations has led to isolated solutions which requires an initiative for a) developing better solutions, b) more efficient solutions, c) solutions which go beyond the obligations of the related EU directives, d) creating synergies and e) sharing the know-how, knowledge and experiences.

In those societies with access to new media, concern continues to grow about the digital divide, between generations and between majority and minority social groups. In Portuguese society, this challenge presents some specific characteristics, marked by major cultural and educational differences and by the very different levels of digital literacy that distinguish the access and use of these media by adults and children. Children and youth younger than 18 year are ahead of adults in access and use, to the contrary of what happens in the majority of other European countries.

Portugal has passed from being a country of emigrants to becoming a country of immigrants, from its old colonies in Africa and Brazil in the last few decades, and more recently of immigrants from the countries of Eastern Europe. Access and use of the digital media also vary between children that have these media at home and in their room, and those who only get to use them at school and in public access where their use is limited and conditioned by circumstances.

This project thus intends to contribute to knowledge of the critical factors that facilitate or make more difficult the access and use of digital media by social groups that are considered socially disadvantaged. With this research it will be possible to bring together indicators that will contribute to helping digital content industries reach and include segments of the market that are not yet reached by their productions; that may help design public policies for digital inclusion that will be more effective and sustainable; that may strengthen local networks and agencies, including the production of contents by the groups that have been digitally excluded until now.

Energy related questions are seen as key challenge in South Africa from various perspectives: Security of supply is a core topic for the thriving industrial nation. Energy poverty and social equity ("electricity for all") has high relevance on the post-apartheid political agenda. Local emissions from coal burning are an important health issue. Poor cooking devices form a severe threat due to the risk of large shack fires in informal settlement. Lately the issue of climate change has become more and more important - South Africa relying almost entirely on coal and being number 12 globally of the biggest CO2 emittants. It emits roughly 40% of the CO2 emissions of the African continent.

ECOGIS Laives Monitoring of power consuming of public buildings (Progetto di monitoraggio del consumo energetico degli edifici pubblici)
The Municipality of Laives (Italy) aimed at assessing the current status of power usage in public buildings and in branches of its lighting (...)
The Municipality of Laives (Italy) aimed at assessing the current status of power usage in public buildings and in branches of its lighting network, evaluating so far the potentiality for improvement of power efficiency.
To this goal it performed a study on the power usage of 26 public buildings and municipal lighting network. The project makes available this study on the Web; through an interactive query interface and a simple mapping representation, it allows decision makers to adopt mitigation actions and to citizens to query and view power data on public buildings, thus fostering investments in new power sources.

This project provides to all users a Web site on the public gardens and vegetation in the Municipality of Rimini (Italy). It is uniquely based on open-source technologies.
It offers an interactive maps where citizens can click on a Municipality zone and look for parks and trees that populate them.
A 'tree card' provides information on the most available species and sometimes photos of single tree can be viewed.
The objective is to raise knowledge and awareness of citizens on the importance of public vegetation and its protection.

This WebGIS lets access data collected in the Project of Environmental Monitoring of the branch Vicenza-Rovigo of the motorway A31 Valdastico.
For the implementation of the WEbGIS the mapping base included orthorectified remotely sensed images, acquired at different stages and reporting municipalities borders and other data.
It is therefore possible to visualize progress in works.
It is possible to register for free and visualize information collected till now.
