Urban areas significantly contribute to the on-going climate change and, at the same time, are highly vulnerable to its effects, which have a strong impact on citizens life quality and health status. The high heterogeneity of cities requires a spatially detailed description of their environmental boundaries, in order to design and implement effective actions aimed at leading towards more healthy and sustainable places. Advances in sensor technology, data communication and processing capabilities allow to conceive the active parti - cipation of citizens in the process of environmental data collection within cities, by implementing a human-centered approach with citizens as data prosumers: (both producers consumers of data processed). Retrieved information would thus become enough accurate in space to support an effective renovation of the city and would represent the real exposure of everyone to the consequences of climate change. Wearable devices are already implemented for the smart management of the healthcare sector, and their usage could be thus extended in the coming future for a better management of Smart Cities other sectors.
