This e-book and correspondent platform MyC3Place present the collection of the outcomes
carried out by the partners of the C3Places Project.
It explores the new dynamics of open spaces as a trusted service for community and
expands our understanding on how mediated public open spaces function, paying attention

this e-book expands our knowledge on meeting emerging citizens’ needs about the future
