June 8, 2017 a conference was held in the regional administration of the Dnepr in honor of the victory of the EcoInfo project in the state Ukrainian-Swiss program EGAP Challenge 2017.
This voluntary project’s aim is to publicize ecology situation in Ukraine.
EcoInfo mission: to give every Ukrainian comfortable information about air quality. So that everyone, going into the weather on a smartphone, could not only know the temperature of the air, but also its quality.
EcoInfo shows air quality at the moment and the pollutants within the radius from 5 till 50 kms will be shown. All air pollutants can be read in more detail on the website ecoinfo.pro. The main factors influencing the purity of air are large plants and enterprises - more than 90% of pollution.
At the conference, the team talked about the innovation - VR tour. That is already available to every user of EcoInfo. It is not necessary to have virtual reality glasses it's enough to go to the page of the site "Zapovidniki/VR Tour" and enjoy a stroll through the territories of Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye and Donetsk regions.
