How would you describe the main mission of your initiative?Measure/monitor air quality, Smart/sustainable mobility, Raise awareness/education, Advocate for air quality policies, Environmental justice

Please provide a short description of your initiative (What is being done? Who is participating? What are your main goals?) This text will appear on the main page.The main ambition of the Balbyn’air campaign is to provide awareness for the volunteer citizens and that these citizens speak with their family, friends and entourage about air quality issue and actions to improve air quality on their scale. The Balbyn’air campaign does not has an ambition to provide accurate data on air quality. For that aim, Bobigny city has implemented stationary air quality devices around the city to provide daily data on pollution in the city.

Who is your main audience?Citizen

Schools Air Quality Monitoring for Health and Education

Location: London, United Kingdom

Description: SAMHE brings together pupils, teachers, scientists from 6 institutions across the UK and is supported by the UK Governments' Department for Education. SAMHE will establish a network of air quality monitors in schools across the UK, creating an unparalleled dataset which will help researchers better understand schools' indoor air quality and provide evidence for better national policies and practice. This will enable pupils to interact with real world data about their environment and gives them agency to take informed action.
