On 20 February 2019 (6:30 PM CET), Nesta and the Universal Commons Project are hosting "Clean Air is our Natural Capital - Universal Commons Measurement Challenge".
This is the first in a series of events about how we measure social and natural capital. In conversations about social and natural capital, it helps when we’re all speaking the same language. Across the environmental sphere in particular, a plethora of single-use metrics have emerged, some laden with context and serving narrow purposes. The Universal Commons seeks to change this. The focus on air quality reflects the Universal Commons Measurement Challenge; a new challenge prize to develop innovative metrics that address social and environmental externalities.
