In Europe, emissions from diesel cars kill thousands of people every year. The delayed enforcement of the EU emission limits is responsible for a large number of premature deaths. Current technology would enable car makers to pollute even less than they should according to law. But they are reluctant to invest to make their cars cleaner. There is no legal argument why the EU should not force them to save human lives instead of allowing them to save their money. The only motive that brought the EU to the dark side is: Power.

Global warming is changing the Polar regions faster than any other place on Earth. These remote landscapes will look much different in a hundred years. In order to raise awareness and preserve the polar natural heritage in mankind’s memory, we intend to travel across these extreme and fragile ecosystems, take 360° photos and draw immersive panoramic tours. Every Google Maps user will be able to walk along our virtual trails and watch around to feel closer to the World’s Northernmost and Southernmost lands, rarely visited and poorly known by most people
Air pollution has an adverse impact on both health and climate, mostly in urban areas where road traffic and households emissions are very dense. If you want to know more about air quality in an entertaining way, you can take part in our cycling monitoring tours. As our bike-held mobile sensor measures pollutants concentrations along the way, you can read the data on your smartphone and share it with your friends in real time. You’ll contribute to our long-term investigation aiming to gather new findings and raise public awareness on this important topic
