AIR-HERITAGE

Location: Portici, Italy

Description: AIR-HERITAGE aims to design and implement effective, participative policies to improve the City of Portici air quality. The project developed and used an extensive air quality monitoring network, consisting of fixed regulatory monitoring stations, mobile monitoring stations and portable air quality monitors for citizens, to assess current levels of air pollution in the city. Monitoring data and tools have been fused and form an integral part of the Decision Support tool developed to inform policy makers and citizens.

SmartAir

SmartAir

Location: Gafanha da Nazaré, Portugal

Description: SmartAir emerged to respond to the problems identified by the educational community and which are related to the increase in the emission of polluting gases into the atmosphere. Students and teachers received training from researchers at the University of Aveiro and from teachers in the school's technical areas in terms of building sensors and in terms of communication and information. The curricular framework was made within the scope of Curricular Autonomy and and within the scope of the SmartSchoolLab project.

ClairCity

ClairCity

Location: Bristol, United Kingdom

Description: ClairCity was an EU research project which aimed to raise awareness about air pollution and carbon emissions in our cities, looking at how we all contribute to the problems and how they affect the air we breathe. Uniquely, the project put the power in the hands of residents to determine the best local solutions.
Six partner cities directly shaped the project; they were Amsterdam (Netherlands); Bristol (UK); Ljubljana (SIovenia); Sosnowiec (Poland); the Aveiro region (Portugal) and the Liguria region (Italy).

OdourCollect

OdourCollect

Location: Barcelona, Spain

Description: This project is based on a standardised European methodology to evaluate odour episodes through citizens' observations. Odour Collect’s main goal is identifying areas where the quality of life is jeopardised by frequent odour exposure. Any citizen can act as the observer and collect geo-localised open data on the odour episode, which can be used to build collaborative odour complaint maps. Through citizen generated data, it is possible to get a better understanding of the impact of odour emitting activities.

xAire

xAire

Location: Barcelona, Spain

Description: xAire represents a large-scale monthly air quality monitoring in Barcelona and it has been replicated in Venice. It is an unprecedented citizen science project that involves schools and families to both: collect new geographically accurate data on air quality, and to empower themselves to present them rigorously in front of the City Council. With the support of the Consorci d’Educació de Barcelona, 18 public primary schools from the 10 districts of the city participate in the action.

URwatair

URwatair

Location: Thessaloniki, Greece

Description: Citizens are involved in urban rainwater monitoring as well as in urban air pollution monitoring, the latter on the basis of various indoor and outdoor scenarios, by employing low-cost AQ sensors. Via a number of citizen workshops as well as citizen-powered environmental monitoring campaigns, the project aims to map related problems and arrive at a set of best practices applicable to everyday life, on the basis of collaborative data analytics and knowledge extraction.
