Citizen science & libraries: Create your own air quality sensor with CanAir.io

Wednesday, November 18, 2020 20:00 - 21:30 (CET)

​Join for the event and learn how to contribute to air quality monitoring by using citizen science and how to build your own air quality sensor with CanAirIO, a Colombian citizen observatory to monitor air quality with mobile and fixed sensors for measuring air quality (Particle Material PM2.5) with mobile phones (mobile measurement) or Wi-Fi (fixed measurements) with low-cost technology and open source code!

During the webinar the CanAirIO team will explain how to contribute to air quality monitoring through citizen science and provide a tutorial about how to make an air quality sensor. Representatives from the Network of the National Library of Medicine – Pacific Northwest Region will be joining to ask about the CanAirIO team about the project.

The event will be an hour and a half long. The first hour is geared toward a general audience of all ages, and the last thirty minutes will focus on best practices for community leaders to get others involved in citizen science. 

CREAF is partner of one of the organizers, the European Horizon 2020 Cos4Cloud project
