ClairCity asked citizens across European cities, how do you want to live, work and travel in the future?
Air pollution is the cause of one in eight premature deaths worldwide. Poor air quality is especially dangerous for children and the elderly. ClairCity is a £5.2 million research project and part of the major EU research funding stream called Horizon 2020. It is an innovative project involving thousands of people in cities across Europe, enabling us all to decide the best local options for a future with clean air and lower carbon emissions.
We worked with University of the West of England (UWE) to deliver a multilingual website to support the project's objectives, research and outcomes. One of those objectives is to raise awareness of air quality and encourage actions to reduce pollution. The project will ask citizens how they wish to live in cities in the future in order to improve air quality. Data will be gathered from 6 city regions: Bristol; Amsterdam; Aveiro, in Portugal; Ljubljana, in Slovenia; Sosnowiec, in Poland; and the Liguria region in Italy.
The website provided a gateway for a supporting app, innovative game and school's competition.
