Walk Up Aniene just ended the first phase and collected more than 60 questionnaires. What a success!

Now it’s the time for the second phase: the partecipatory review and analysis of the data. This phase aims to draft a report with the main results of our research along with a plan of recommendations and best practices to be presented to the authorities after the summer.

What is this project about?

Walk Up Aniene will implement its actions in the Aniene Valley Nature Reserve, which is located in the North East periphery or Rome (Italy). Between 60 to 80 people will engage in individual observation and data gathering through mobile technologies. This will provide key data on an essential natural area resisting urbanisation and anthropic pressure. With the help of citizens it will be possible to map environmental criticalities and support responsible institutions to plan environmental restoration measures.

The pilot aims to analyse the environmental quality of the river riparian area while enhancing participation at local level. Monitoring activities will provide data to develop a report on the Nature Reserve of the Aniene Valley and a GIS map that will highlight areas of main criticalities to be addressed, restoration needs and valuable areas to be protected.
