Limerick was awarded the title of European Green Leaf City 2020 (along with Mechelen, Belgium) in recognition of the city’s commitment to better environmental outcomes, with a particular accent on efforts that generate: green growth, new jobs, improved air and acoustic quality in the city, sustainable mobility, energy districts and smart neighbourhoods.
An ambitious programme of environmental events is planned for 2020 in Limerick and Hush City will be proudly part of these European Green Leaf Events!
On Wednesday 3rd June 2020, Dr. Arch. Antonella Radicchi of the TU Berlin Institute for Urban and Regional Planning will be leading a soundwalk for citizens in Limerick which builds on the promotion of the Hush City app in Limerick. The participants will be guided in a soundwalk through quiet areas in Limerick and invited to collect data using the Hush City app. The walk will last approximately 1.5 hours, including an introduction to the activity and a final group discussion with the participants.
Hush City was invented and is managed by Dr. Arch. Antonella Radicchi.
The first version of the Hush City app received funding from the People Programme (Marie Curie Actions) of the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under REA grant agreement no. 600209 (TU Berlin – IPODI).
The second version of the Hush City app received funding from the HEAD-Genuit Foundation.
