Through the smart spot technology develop by HOPU, users only need their smart phone to enjoy this experience.

“Be Memories” is a good starting point for the Walk-a-Story project, as Ceutí already has an experience collecting stories, recording them and using the videos to promote the territory. Through this project, partners aim at developing active story telling walks with intergenerational participants and that citizens themselves may record and upload the best stories through the Co+ Crew App.
