About the Wise Practice

Initially, the point of departure was that the perception of fear and safety as well as the mobility options were the urban planning elements that conditioned night life the most. But the collective work has enabled researchers to highlight other impacts of night work: on the development of everyday life activities, and on the way gender inequalities are manifested on the job environment. Night work also impacts health as well as personal, family and social relationships.
