The Heat Chronicles / Cròniques de la Calor

In Barcelona, Spain “The Heat Chronicles” is a project that works with local communities and schools in areas that have been identified as high density and elevated temperatures within the city. The Heat Chronicles is a citizen science project that pivots on participatory practices and open science and is designed to measure highly localized temperatures and local perceptions of the heat within the environment. The participants are referenced as experts in their own communities and are thus able to provide valuable insight into their own diverse needs and perceptions. They are actively engaged as co-creators that design fundamental elements of the practices.
