New Project: “Save Our Air”

Today the Public Data Lab is launching its Save Our Air project, which explores how data can be used to attend to and assemble people around different aspects of air pollution.

As well as focusing on how data can represent air pollution levels in the context of science and policy, it looks at how “situating techniques” can provide new perspectives and involve different publics – such as experiments in “personalised” measurement with school pupils, mapping the landscape of issues and actors associated with air pollution on digital media and examining how different actors apportion blame and responsibility.

These projects are intended as starting points for further experimentation and collective inquiry with and about air pollution data. All documentation, data and code from these experiments is available on the website and openly licensed to encourage re-use.
