Understanding our data driven world

Questions:

Can we hear the sound of the waves from 300m from the beach?
Does the rhythm of the waves change in the different beaches of Barcelona?
Does the noise of the sea improve the quality of life of the citizens?
Are the levels of noise pollution in Barcelona harmful to citizens?
Does the frequencies of the waves resonate with the ones from the body?
How does the prices differ from living near the sea than to live further away?
How is living by the sea percieved as a currency?

Hypothesis
If noise pollution in Barcelona is reduced sufficiently to allow the sound of sea waves to be audible from a distance of 300+ meters from the beach, it can improve the quality of life of the citizens and improve biodiversity.
Reducing Barcelona city noise enables audible beach waves, benefiting well-being and biodiversity.

Learnings
I've come across new tools for collecting data, encouraging me to consider the most appropriate ones for different situations. Some interventions don't necessarily require specific technology, and there are times when not relying on tech for data gathering can lead to unexpected outcomes.

In a recent seminar, we opted to use the noise sensor from the smart citizen kit, a tool unfamiliar to us. We encountered technical issues that made us rethink our reliance on technology. Reflecting on the situation, we realised we could have gathered data using our basic senses, like hearing. Consequently, we decided to record data using both methods — the smart citizen kit for one set of data and our own observations, noted in Nicolo's notebook, for what we heard.
