After closing in April 2022, the UIA HOPE project leaves behind a lasting legacy. “HOPE” stands for “Healthy Outdoor Premises for Everyone”.
The project piloted in Helsinki a next generation of air quality monitoring technology that gave residents of the Finnish capital the opportunity to track their own personal exposure to air pollutants, and at the same time supported the improvement of city-wide air quality modelling.
HOPE has successfully demonstrated the suitability of cost-effective air quality sensor networks to support district-level urban planning and pollutant mitigation as well as reduction of individual-level pollution exposure.
