Ever wondered how our travel journeys impact your city’s air quality? Now, for the first time, you can.
Green Ant is a free app for mobiles (Apple and Android) alongside a web system that allows you to become a citizen scientist, through monitoring your own and others’ transport activities. Utilising GPS data, you simply let the app run in the background while you get around the city.
Collect data with friends, colleagues, or use as a tool to improve the health of your staff or fellow citizens. The more citizens there are collecting data, the richer the picture we can build about air quality in the city. By making visible the invisible, we can begin to make changes to how we travel.
For video instructions on how to play, check out our YouTube videos (or flyer, attached):

By taking part, you will be contributing to the EU’s largest citizen science research project on air pollution reduction in cities!
Your data will help you and fellow citizens to improve air quality locally.
Your feedback is critical, allowing us to improve the usability of the App before its official launch.
