ClairCity – Citizen-led air pollution reduction in cities

ClairCity is a four year project (2016-2020) working directly with citizens and local authorities in six countries around Europe. The Science Communication Unit at UWE Bristol is leading the Communications and Evaluation Work Package on behalf of the sixteen partner organisations involved in the project.

Six cities are partners in the project; Amsterdam in the Netherlands; Bristol in the UK; Ljubljana in Slovenia; Sosnowiec in Poland; the Aveiro region in Portugal and the Liguria region around Genoa in Italy. Each city faces different issues and causes of air pollution, but all of the partner cities are working to improve their air quality.

The project is using existing data that will be applicable across many more cities to drive the innovative public engagement activities. ClairCity is examining data that is already collected by all cities with over 50,000 residents in the EU and using it to build new models of urban air pollution and carbon emissions. These new models and scenarios will make it easier for cities to identify changes that they can make for society to reduce emissions and make a positive change in peoples’ lives.

ClairCity is funded through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme. For more information contact the Communication Coordinator Corra Boushel, Communication Manager Laura Fogg-Rogers, or the Evaluator Margarida Sardo.
