Understanding Air Quality

Imagine if every digital sign in the city was eager to share the current air quality. What if drivers could see the immediate impact there actions are having on the environment around them? I believe if we educated our citizens on how air quality fluctuates through our the day, like at drop off time at an elementary school people might change their behaviour.

What will change for Calgarians if we solve this problem? (Measurable)

If we change people’s behaviour we would see an impact on our air quality and possibly an interest in the overall environment.

How could we make it happen with technology or data? (Attainable)

Our weather stations already record air quality, all we want to do is share this information with the public more obviously. Having a measure of air quality at problem spots (10th Street next to SAIT) would be ideal.
