Clean air city
Bristol is part of an EU funded consortium of universities and research institutions to actively engage European citizens in measuring their personal impact on air quality and CO2 emissions in their cities. The project will use innovative tools like specially made apps and games for smart phones to generate citizen-led policies to improve air-related health in our cities. Thousands of people across Europe will be invited to share their views on how to reduce air pollution and improve related public health in six pilot cities. Residents will use a game on their smartphones, tablets and laptops to suggest how their home cities should develop in the future. The result will be directly translated in improved city policies. In Bristol we will focus on raising awareness about poor air quality and work with citizens to identify simple actions that can improve air quality in their local streets.
