AIR in Paradise

AIR in Paradise is an open innovation project supported by the French Mediterranean Air Quality Network Fablab.
The project consists in modeling a real neighbourhood using digital and physical (Lego) models and encouraging members of the community and stakeholders to design solutions for a better air quality through workshops and local events. Hi-tech and personal sensors are deployed. All data are open and will be the base for the setting-up of a digital lab. Virtual reality tools will be used to visualize air quality levels and raise awareness.
