The Urban fringe Pharmacy Project is primarily designed to promote healthier lifestyles for the whole community.
Traditionally the types of walks and workshops that they facilitate may be found at National Trust, English Heritage, or other 'middle class' green spaces. Thier open, accessible, and friendly events are held in inner city and urban fringe green spaces and parks, near to bus routes and areas of urban population. We aim to give participants the opportunity to receive expert guidance in a way that is not currently available.
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.
