We are concerned about rising air pollution and its effect on our health and frustrated by finding our favorite places in nature (e.g. Griebnitzsee) littered with trash. Thus, we want to enable people to change that.

In combination with freely available coal plant, air pollution and local politician data, citizens can use our system to find clean places in their area and help raise awareness at the local political layer to such issues.

What it does

  • Recommend clean places in your area
  • Show air pollution and environmental issues on a map
  • Report environmental issues
  • Help finding and contacting responsible politicians
  • Autogenerated complains
  • Crowd sourced environmental issues
