open-seneca is building air quality sensing networks in cities around the globe by leveraging the power of citizen science. Started in 2018 as a summer project by a group of PhD students from the University of Cambridge, the initiative now operates networks in a dozen cities in South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe. Air quality data collected is used to identify pollution hotspots within the city and to enable policymakers and urban planners to act based on evidence. open-seneca works with governmental organisations and city councils by providing tools and educational materials to create a dialogue with their citizens and involve communities in the solutions created.
