KIWI – an inter­active tool for communities

How can smart techno­logies help communities contribute to a more sustainable urban envir­onment?

Our KIWI app and website is a dedicated tool to reduce the negative impacts of pollution and noise in cities and empower communities to create their own envir­onment. How is this done? Residents of a block or street can register on the platform, democrat­ically propose ideas and make decisions that are relevant to the whole community, and then the smart signs help to implement these decisions by organ­ising traffic or reorgan­ising the block’s public spaces.

The KIWI platform was tested in the summer of 2021 in Užupis, Vilnius. During the platform’s testing period, the Paupio street section saw a signi­ficant reduction in car traffic and a safer pedes­trian exper­ience. Now we are looking to extend the platform to other cities.
