What are the true levels of air pollution around your home and place of business? And what about sound pollution? And the air humidity level? Now, imagine that you could find out, share and compare these levels with those from other places in the city, instantly and in real-time… how would this information help improve our lives in our environment?
Smart Citizen embarked on the mass manufacture of answers to these questions, with the Smart Citizen Kit, as well as creating a platform to generate participative projects for people living in cities. By bringing together data, citizens and knowledge, the aim of the platform is to serve as a productive node for the generation of open indicators and distributed tools, leading to the collective construction of cities by their own inhabitants.
