Citizen Sensing Toolkit

The Citizen Sensing Toolkit was produced as part of the Making Sense project, which draws on nine citizen sensing campaigns in Holland, Kosovo and Spain in 2016 and 2017. Based on that experience we developed a framework and methods and tools for citizen participation in environmental monitoring and action. Their approach is bottom-up and participatory, and we call it "citizen sensing".
