The aim of our tools is to involve citizens in assessments of air and environmental quality to empower them to participate in environmental governance. In CITI-SENSE, we are targeting people in our nine participating cities, i.e., Barcelona, Belgrade, Edinburgh, Haifa, Ljubljana, Ostrava, Oslo, Vienna and Vitoria, but most of the tools are available to everybody, everywhere, as long as the project infrastructure is in place.
Here we present four examples from CITI-SENSE:
Haifa - Raising Students' Awareness to Air Quality Concepts
Ljubljana - Organizing Nature Days for Children
Oslo - Citizens' Observatories with Parents of Kindergarten, Children and Other Citizens
Ostrave - Citizens’ Observatories and biomonitoring campaign
