Hush City Soundwalks were initiated by Antonella Radicchi in 2017 and they are soundwalks, in which the Hush City app is exploited to map and evaluate quiet areas, which are linked in real time to the Hush City Map, becoming open access to everyone. The free Hush City app was invented and launched on the market by Antonella Radicchi in 2017 and since then further developed within the context of not-profit soundscape and citizen science research projects to map and evaluate everyday quiet areas.
Our cities are becoming noisier by the hour. Only in Europe, over 125 million people are affected by noise pollution from traffic every year, and apparently, quietness is becoming a luxury available only to a few of us.
The Hush City app will help you tackle this challenge and identify, map and evaluate everyday quiet areas in your neighbourhoods. You can find places such as small, quiet spots where you can go to escape the city’s chaos, relax, read a book, play with your kids, and have a pleasant conversation. Chill out!
Celebrate with us the Sound Walk Sunday 2019 and join one of the Hush City Soundwalks!
