We are the RGBes, a team of 20 high school students who share the passion for innovation
and technology altogether with an interest towards ecology. Right now, while you're

informations about his lifestyle. Then, the app will calculate his "Eco-Score", based on his
answers, and will proceed to the generation of his city.

that will let them consult the information surveyed in their city zone. Thanks to this, they
will be able to see if their little citizens are doing good or if there's still more room for
