Citizen Science Garrotxa

0 reviews

To measure and acknowledge air pollution, noise, traffic and other that may impact community health and well-being in Garrotxa region.

Air pollution is one of the main health challenges for the next years according to the World Health Organization. Garrotxa region is a rural area in Catalonia known for its natural landscape but little was acknowledged about its air quality. The capital of the region, Olot, is a medium-sized city with a high car-dependency and an industrial park that attracts a constant flow of lorries. Noise, odours and air pollution were a concern for many neighbours. This Citizen Science project was born to address this and obtain actual data that may contribute to policy-decisions.
