The BIG project
The BIG project runs over three years and aims to develop a tool for urban planning in which community services, ecosystem services, and citizens’ quality of life are taken into account. By collecting large amounts of data about the city and connecting these to citizens’ health and well-being you can increase the understanding of how healthy, sustainable, and livable cities should be built in the future.
