Noise pollution affects us all, but it can be particularly challenging for individuals with neurodivergent conditions like Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). As a part of the Bristol Soundwalks and HushCity initiative, we’ve been on a transformative journey to identify and assess quiet spaces within our bustling city since 2017 https://lnkd.in/e84TKsa
We’ve conducted over 250 soundwalks, exploring the hidden gems of tranquillity amidst the urban hustle. From peaceful parks to unexpected oases, we’ve discovered the importance of quiet areas in promoting healthier living and enhancing well-being for neurodivergent individuals and their caregivers.
We’re excited to announce our partnership with the WECIL (West of England Centre For Inclusive Living), Bristol City Council, Tranquil City, Stantec, Visit West, and Antonella Radicchi, PhD to develop a physical map of Quiet Areas specifically designed for neurodivergent individuals. This project is a significant step towards making Bristol a more accessible and inclusive place for everyone, regardless of their neurodivergent journey.
But we need your support! We’re seeking funding and collaboration with our amazing partners to bring this map to life. We can create a lasting impact and advocate for change for Bristollians and social value.
