Sensing Local was involved in developing the concept framework for the community portal for Clean Air Platform, Bengaluru, conceived to be the online platform for communication and engagement with CAP-B’s programmes alongside dissemination of critical information that spreads awareness and understanding with regard to air pollution. It was envisioned to be a highly interactive portal embodying CAP-B’s principal intent of - 'Making Air Pollution Personal' and ‘Creating Momentum for Informed Action’; making it the most critical citizen facing engagement piece of the initiative.


The proposal was to develop two portals -

  • India Air portal - a platform to bring together actors from all over the country to share knowledge, spread awareness and disseminate good practices and scalable solutions

  • City portal - A more active platform focussed on Bengaluru, with features like live air quality data, research and pilots, analysis, etc.
