As requests from citizens to concretly act to improve air quality in Bologna increased, in May 2018 the Bologna Municipality promoted the Air Lab. The participatory process, coordinated by the Foundation for Urban Innovation, aims to enhance the engagement of citizens in improving air quality by a clear change of habits and daily actions.
The Lab, open to every citizen, stakeholder, expert or technician, gives the participants a chance to ask questions and necessities, criticalities and best practices to be followed to make Bologna a healthier city. The main goal of the process, shared with the participants, was to create a public communication campaign to improve both the knowledge and the effort of citizens in cleaning the air in the urban context.
One of the outputs of Bologna's Air Lab is a mobile App that is currently it its development phase, which needs to be implemented in its interactive section. Be part of our attempt to engage citizens in improving air quality by designing the interactive section of our partly developed mobile App.
