DIY Air quality monitors: Talk

Starting from a concern about the quality of air in Torry, citizen David Fryer and designers Ben Durack and Kevin Mulhern worked collaboratively to design and produce a small batch of DIY air pollution monitors already present in the city.

These monitors are situated in a global network of citizen science projects as a response to increasing concerns about air pollution in cities. Through the creative commons license and open data platforms, citizens are able to participate in the issues that concern them, and Aberdeen is no different.
