Give to...a healthy city

Still to go

from €6.500 (36%)

We are facing increasing air pollution and heat waves caused by urbanisation and climate change. Due to its unique location, these problems are more pronounced in Maastricht. This affects the physical and mental health of the city’s inhabitants and how they interact with each other. Researcher Bram Oosterbroek wants to identify these unhealthy places. He needs a new ‘measuring bike’ to carry out his measurements. Based on the results, he plans to advise on urban development to ensure a sustainable city. Check out his campaign video. Will you help Bram on his way?

About project owner Bram Oosterbroek
Bram Oosterbroek is researcher at the Maastricht Sustainability Institute (MSI) in the fields of ecosystem services, spatial modeling, human health and biodiversity. He is working on a spatial (geographic) model to assess and optimise the impact of ecosystems on human health. MSI is part of the School of Business and Economics (SBE) at Maastricht University.

Bram Oosterbroek: "It's great to cycle through Maastricht, with my 'research lab'. People regularly ask me what I'm doing with those sensors. With a new measuring bike I can take a closer look at different areas in the city. In this way I will contribute to a healthy city."
