This WP focuses on providing support for navigation through socio-geographical environments. A neighborhood is not only experienced through the layout of the streets and squares, but also by the perceived social threats and opportunities. This WP focuses on human navigation support, helping citizens to form relevant mental models of the structure of their social and geographical environment and to take corresponding decisions, enabling them to feel safe and secure as well as socially connected. The research focuses on young elementary school children (6-12 years) and their social environment such as parents and schools.
