Citizens leading the research on urban pollution & health
CitieS-Health aimed to put citizens’ concerns at the heart of research agenda on environmental epidemiology by tackling health issues that concern them.
Citizens along with scientists in five cities in Europe co-designed and implemented epidemiological studies to explore how their living environment is affecting their health.
The project co-created an interactive toolkit.eu with customised tools and best practices for the replication of the studies in other locations by researchers, individuals and citizen groups.
