The final event of InformAria, the co-creation initiative run by MOSAIC’s Pilot City Milan, took place last Friday 29 September, gathering together citizens, R&I actors, representatives of civil society, and Milan city administration.

Started in March, this experience brought together a group of city stakeholders to co-create solutions to make air quality data more accessible to citizens and enable them to make informed decisions, particularly regarding health impacts. After a presentation of the co-creation process, coordinated by the Bassetti Foundation in collaboration with the City's Green and Environment Directorate, and a brief description of the solutions designed by the participants, the city government provided feedback to the volunteers on the potential for implementing the two proposed projects. 

Both solutions co-created through InformAria are of interest to the Milan municipality, which will explore their feasibility. For one of them, a city-wide display system, the City will immediately initiate a feasibility study. For the other solution, a web app, it will be necessary to wait a few years for a greater availability of data.

The meeting concluded with an interactive session, during which the audience had the opportunity to propose other challenges that could be addressed using the methodology developed within the MOSAIC project. Mobility, noise pollution, and urban space design were some of the suggested themes.
