The School of Geography at the University of Leeds offers a new Masters Programme in Activism and Social Change (ASC). It is the first of its kind in Europe, and offers students an opportunity to be fully engaged in an innovative and original interdisciplinary programme of research-led teaching and participatory study which brings together the worlds of academia and progressive social campaigning.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
