Description: 

How can DIY technologies help address local environmental challenges around the world? Ecological systems are under strain everywhere, but some of the symptoms, like pollution, have invisible sources. Picking up environmental data can give us a window into understanding our surroundings, along with some insights on how we might create positive interventions. We’ll briefly share some stories on how others are doing this, and then together we'll play with sensors, DIY technologies as well as our own eyes and ears to explore our place on earth.
