An online magazine using todays web technologies to gather and share articles on key issues. By creating a 'democratic' space, with contributors from all over the world, openDemocracy tries to give a more open perspective on a wide range of topics.
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.
