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.

Citizen Urban Health Laboratory

Citizen Urban Health Laboratory

Location: Barcelona, Spain

Description: The Urban Health Lab is a collaborative space for experimentation, learning and practice to foster community participation in building more resilient, healthy, sustainable and inclusive neighbourhoods. The lab aims to create communities of learning and practice, working collectively to identify needs, problems and interests, and to foster creative ideas that improve neighbourhood conditions through experimentation, shared knowledge and scientific culture.

Black CarbonHumidityTemperature


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.

List of parameters measured: Temperature, Humidity, Black Carbon
