The Living Lab Guidebook for cities fighting against air pollution
The “Living Lab Guidebook for Cities fighting against Air Pollution” is a guide that has been developed to showcase and benchmark the outcomes, experiences and lessons learnt of the six iSCAPE Living Labs. It includes the results of the quadruple helix approach used to bridge knowledge, environment and technology to tackle air pollution in collaboration with local government, industry, academia and local communities. The book includes a series of actionable recommendations and it is intended to spread the iSCAPE message, methods and solutions for other cities to follow. It aims to create more sustainable: collaborative & people-centred; resilient & strategic; aware & healthy; smart & techy; and less polluted cities.
The main target audience of the guidebook are cities and existing Urban Living Labs, although other urban actors working in the field for air quality such as industry, researchers, policy makers or SMEs were also taken into consideration when shaping the knowledge and learnings of the publication. This book also provides actionable resources through the DIY chapter that can be used as a hands-on exercise that, although builds on the experiences of air pollution-oriented Living Labs, the lessons are applicable to other Living Labs in general.
