The main aim of CAT-MED is the development of sustainable urban models which are based on the classical Mediterranean city; compact, complex and where the proximity of public services is determined by people's ability to access them on foot. The project is developing a system of common indicators and has carried out a pilot experience which involved the planning and design of the Green Apple. The project represents a symbol of territorial, social and technological cohesion, promoting participation and public debate through the launch of a platform for Mediterranean cities.
