Assess elusive issues such as sound or odour pollution, while the problem varies from person to person. How? By inviting the citizens into a project, by sharing the sensor readings in real-time within that project, and by asking citizens that are in the proximity of a sensor to express their opinion once the sensor hits a high reading. The result?
- time and place specific assessment of noise and odour pollution
- harmonisation of fact and feeling (sensor reading versus citizens’ evaluation)
- policy makers better informed
- Satisfied citizens that feel heard
