Project website:

The project aims to combine the knowledge-based environment and self-organization, build relationships with government bodies to develop a Geographic Information System in the territory of the Republic of Kosovo. The contributors will assemble and install air pollution sensors to measure environmental parameters affecting the quality of life such as the level of air pollution, to inform and alarm each other as well as the authorities. The citizens of Kosovo are active in crowdsourcing data collection and distribution, as it was proven to numerous projects before. The project will therefore include other types of data collection related to environmental protection (e.g. monitoring of illegal landfills).
