Measurements and perceptions of air quality

Measurements and perceptions of air quality

Location: Paris, France

Description: The aim of the project is to improve knowledge of the levels of pollution at the heart of traffic, while testing a new network of measurements, and to understand the perception of Ile-de-France residents with regard to air quality. These innovations will make it possible to raise awareness of air quality in Ile-de-France, and ultimately to identify the levers of commitment of Ile-de-France residents to reduce air pollution.

Measure Together (Samen Meten)

Measure Together (Samen Meten)

Location: Utrecht, Netherlands

Description: Samen Meten is an infrastructure for data and knowledge sharing for citizen scientists interested in air quality. We provide a platform where citizens can find their own data and the data of others. In addition, the data can be analysed via the 'Analyse together tool'. New citizen scientists can also find information on how and where to start measuring air quality. Currently also data on noise and water quality is added.

H2020 SOCIO-BEE

H2020 SOCIO-BEE

Location: Bilbao, Spain

Description: The H2020 SOCIO-BEE project aims to encourage citizens to take an active role in the fight against climate change through citizen science using disruptive technologies such as drones and wearables articulated by a framework called AcadeMe. More specifically, Socio-Bee aims to involve different segments of citizens (young people under 16 years of age, older adults over 65 years, and people who commute by car or through public transport in large cities or suburbs) in different scientific endeavors..
