Abstract
WaterGram will empower citizens (e.g. students, scientists, designers) and public authorities to make knowledge on water quality more accessible. Even though water is an important asset within our urban environment - from our water tap to the river flowing under a bridge, from the rainwater to the greywater pouring in the canals - citizens are usually detached from the hidden dynamics of water nature. To address this issue, we plan to provide a digital platform that will allow citizens not only to share and monitor information on water quality at anytime but also potentially engage and better understand challenges regarding water management.
