Location: Barcelona, Spain

Description: This project is based on a standardised European methodology to evaluate odour episodes through citizens' observations. Odour Collect’s main goal is identifying areas where the quality of life is jeopardised by frequent odour exposure. Any citizen can act as the observer and collect geo-localised open data on the odour episode, which can be used to build collaborative odour complaint maps. Through citizen generated data, it is possible to get a better understanding of the impact of odour emitting activities.

Location: Barcelona, Spain

Description: xAire represents a large-scale monthly air quality monitoring in Barcelona and it has been replicated in Venice. It is an unprecedented citizen science project that involves schools and families to both: collect new geographically accurate data on air quality, and to empower themselves to present them rigorously in front of the City Council. With the support of the Consorci d’Educació de Barcelona, 18 public primary schools from the 10 districts of the city participate in the action.
