Clean air is essential to our everyday health and well-being – in fact, access to it is viewed as a human right. However, the reality for too many citizens across the EU and beyond is that exposure to unhealthy air quality is a daily experience.
Air pollution is a far-reaching, transnational problem. This is why solutions to tackle it and achieve healthy air quality need to be just as far-reaching and consider the views of people from all over Europe.
Crowdsourcing is simply a way of solving problems and producing things by connecting online with people that otherwise you wouldn't know.
CODE Europe is a transnational experimentation of e-democracy platforms for the co-creation of policies and a research project on e-participation. The project aims to allow citizens to co-produce solutions for Europe on the subject of ‘air quality’ through the method of crowdsourcing legislation in five different countries, to implement a Digital Dashboard for social listening in order to gather online opinions on the issue of ‘air quality’ and to develop a universally applicable methodology for the assessment of e-participation experiences and ethical guidelines for social listening.* Social listening is the process of collecting and analyzing data from online sources about people's assessments, expectations and suggestions.
