Team: Public Data Lab
SaveOurAir will make it easier for city planners, citizens, and civil society groups to find or tell ‘data stories’ about air at very particular locations – such as a road, a square, a school, or a traffic intersection. This project will be carried out through a series of “data sprints”. Data-sprints are transdisciplinary collectives that assemble over several days to collaboratively explore and visualize a set of research questions. The sprints will include participation from field experts, local citizens and civil society groups. As a result, the ‘data stories platform’ will be co-designed. By facilitating the possibility to build on existing data, the project aims to make the issue of air quality tangible for architects, city planners, activists, educators, and others.
