5. Solution - open seneca - Lorena Gordillo Dagallier (UK) - Sensor (1)

Swedish capital Stockholm is implementing an experimental air quality measurement system which aims to nudge people towards less polluting behaviour.The mobile air quality sensor network, called Open-seneca, was one of the winners of the Women4Climate Tech Challenge 2020.Lorena Gordillo Dagallier, a PhD student from the University of Cambridge, UK, came up with the idea of ‘citizen scientists’ using relatively cheap, small monitors – which fit into backpacks or can be carried on bicycles – to record air quality data.The main aim is awareness-raising, with communities able to pinpoint exposure to particulates and create pollution maps which will guide policymakers and planners.
