“In a fair city, streets are safe for everyone, especially children. (As Penalosa points out, your streets are not inclusive until you can imagine an eight-year-old and an eighty-year-old walking safely and independently. This might seem an audacious goal until you actually see the very old people and the very young people walking and cycling on the streets of Copenhagen or Vauban, and now El Paraiso.)”*
Charles Montgomery’s vision of a happy city becomes an inspiration for the City of Poznań, especially the new methods of creating a friendly, open and safe space, common for all residents. The smart space is a space available to all, attractive and safe with smart solutions, which is conducive to building social relations.
