EU’s H2020 project Making Sense produced recently the documentary “Citizen Science Revolution”, in which IAAC participated, aimed at showing the work done by empowered citizens in Barcelona, Pristina and Amsterdam who addressed environmental issues through technology.
Can a low cost sensor change the reality of a city? And dozens of them? In the spring of 2016, different groups of citizens concerned about noise pollution, air quality and gamma radiation in their neighborhoods began to collect data with the Smart Citizen Kit to measure the scope of their problems and try to find solutions. At first, governments do not recognize the data as valid because they do not come from official sensors. But the revolution of citizen science is unstoppable.
