d-noses

Self-paced learning distance courses


Description

This MOOC invites the users to raise awareness on the not so-well-known problem of the odour pollution. So during in our journey through this course we have the opportunity to understand what generates the problem of odour pollution and how it affects our lives. We also examine its consequences through all related aspects, meaning the environmental, social, health and economic. Last but not least, we are getting informed on what we can do as citizens about the problem and what are the available tools and frameworks for tackling the problem.
The MOOC is developed in the framework of the EU supported D-NOSES Programme that aims at introducing the odour pollution in the policy agendas.
