D-NOSES MOOC on Odour Pollution for Educators


Description
This MOOC explores odour pollution and suggests a set of learning activities for students of various age-groups. The aim is to support educators in i) understanding the concerns about the odour pollution themselves and ii) to enable them to introduce the topic to possible target audiences (learners in the wide sense that can be students, adults, citizens, policy makers etc).
PART I of the MOOC examines what generates odour pollution, its impacts -environmental, social, health and economic- and sheds light on the various D-NOSES resources and tools that can support citizens to undertake action.
PART II of the MOOC presents a series of teaching and learning activities that can be used by both formal and non-formal educators to "teach" their audiences about this, not so well known, topic.
The MOOC is developed in the framework of the D-NOSES Project: “Distributed Network for Odour Sensing, Empowerment and Sustainability” that aims to introduce odour pollution in the policy agendas. D-NOSES has received funding from the European’s Union Horizon 2020 Science with & for Society Call (SwafS) under grant agreement No. 789315.
