Ways of local sustainability: mobility, social capital and inequality

This project aims to deconstruct a common image of ‘suburbia’ as a uniform space, where people live similar lives in similar
places. In order to better understand the reality behind this stereotype we will inquiry into the hypothetical causal relationship between the intensity of urban sprawl and its negative effects in terms of ecological balance, social fragmentation and citizenship practices.
