Airsift is part of a larger research project called Citizen Sense , which investigates the relationship between technologies and practices of environmental sensing and citizen engagement.
We worked with them to develop the new Airsift platform, which allows local groups to document their observations, analyse data from air quality monitors, and collect these into data stories.
As a leading digital tools cooperative, Common Knowledge brings an unparalleled range of experience to digital projects. Creativity abounds in their work, from platform design to technical configurations. Their knowledge of UX design, full-stack development, as well as community organisation and participation, made a key contribution to our AirKit toolkit and Airsift platform. They are excellent and thoughtful collaborators, who have a truly transformative approach to digital technology and development.
