What is the name of your initiative?COMPAIR: Community Observation Measurement & Participation in AIR Science

How would you describe the main mission of your initiative?Measure/monitor air quality, Measure personal exposure, 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 COMPAIR innovation project is designed to bolster citizens’ capacity to monitor, understand, and change their environmental impact, both at a behavioural and policy level. It unlocks the power of the wider public, including people from lower-socio economic groups, to provide broad granular data around a central theme of air quality, complementing and improving the quality of official datasets and making new information useful for helping to meet environmental aims.

Who is your main audience?Citizens, Schools, Non- Governmental Organisations, Cities, Private sector, Universities and/or research institutes

CAIRGOBIKE Project

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.
