What is the name of your initiative?Balbyn’Air

How would you describe the main mission of your initiative?Measure/monitor air quality, Smart/sustainable mobility, Raise awareness/education, Advocate for air quality policies, Environmental justice

Please provide a short description of your initiative (What is being done? Who is participating? What are your main goals?) This text will appear on the main page.The main ambition of the Balbyn’air campaign is to provide awareness for the volunteer citizens and that these citizens speak with their family, friends and entourage about air quality issue and actions to improve air quality on their scale. The Balbyn’air campaign does not has an ambition to provide accurate data on air quality. For that aim, Bobigny city has implemented stationary air quality devices around the city to provide daily data on pollution in the city.

Window open or window closed? Increase a healthy surrouding

Window open or window closed? Increase a healthy surrouding

Location: Nijmegen, Netherlands

Description: By measuring inside and outside homes or offices, citizens get a clear overview what the air quality is in their living environment. By looking at the results, one can adjust its behaviour, to increase a healthy surrouding. The detectors are provided in the project to for example ten citizens. During workshops they share insides and knowledge they gained. When is the best moment to open the window? For municipalities, it can optional be combined with wood burning courses.

Location: Saint-Josse-ten-Noode, Belgium

Description: CAIRGOBIKE is designed to improve air quality in the Brussels Capital Region (BCR) by accelerating a modal shift from car/van to cargo bike to transport children, deliver goods and services through an integrated ecosystem of complementary nudging strategies. This innovative ecosystem will convert citizens and professionals to cargo bike use, ease the access to cargo bikes and create parking facilities. User community (citizens/businesses and non-profit) will be directly involved in air quality measurement and communication.
