D-NOSES MOOC on Odour Pollution for Educators

This MOOC enables formal and non-formal educators to understand and explore what odour pollution is and provides a set of learning activities that they can use in their teaching context. The MOOC supports educators to introduce the topic to their target audiences, not only students but also learners in the wider sense, such as life-long learners, citizens, etc. Part I 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 address the problem. Part II presents a series of learning activities (by suggested age groups) that can be used by educators.
The MOOC has been developed in the framework of the D-NOSES Project: “Distributed Network for Odour Sensing, Empowerment and Sustainability” which 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.
