KRAX is a node of reflection, meeting and action about the implication and appropriation of the citizens in the construction and transformation of the city.
The KRAX Meeting is an international meeting of creative citizen initiatives. The KRAX Meeting visualizes and connects different independent initiatives who develop new formats of political, cultural and economic organisation and participation in the city. During the 4 days of the Jornadas, groups of 7 different cities meet in Barcelona to share and to debate, among them and with initiatives from Barcelona, creative experiences of political thought and action.
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.
