Description: In CoMobility, we measured PM2.5, PM10, NO2, and noise in three elementary schools in Warsaw, Poland as well as conducted a series of co-creation workshops, where young experts (2nd and 3rd grade pupils) collaborated with adult experts to enhance more sustainable mobility solutions and reduce the use of private cars in their schools neighbourhoods. Among the co-created and implemented solutions are bicycle road maps, street art, children gazette, and single actions such as children manifestations or mime performances.
