On July 2, 2019, Maker Space in partnership with Open-Seneca UN- Habitat and Urban Pathways organized an air pollution sensor workshop to transfer the knowledge of how to build the sensors with open-source software and hardware.

The workshop brought together 80 participants from diverse professions such as urban planners, engineers, public health officers, cycling activists and students from the University of Nairobi, Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, Technical University of Kenya and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.The testing of these sensors will take a period of one month. The data obtained during the testing of these sensors will be shared with policy makers to show the potential impact and information that the sensors would bring in to eventually inform policy in African institutions, systems and governments that plan our cities and ensure public health safety of the citizens.
