Details Abstract

With smog now constituting part of the daily health threats for Chinese people, many pollution tracking APPs have come into the market to meet the demand for smog related information. Taking one particular APP- “BlueSky Map”, which is originally known as Pollution Map, as the focal case, this talk will explore how grassroots activists define, legitimize and employ such APPs as useful tools, which enable the general public to get informed, make their voices heard, and take necessary actions. The empirical analysis will focus on how environmental APPs empower Chinese public, how do citizens, NGOs, government and polluters interact on the interface, and what is the effect and implication of such participation for China’s environmental governance.
