Let’s face it, London’s air is toxic. Local councils and the London Mayor are constantly in the news about how they are working to tackle the issue and give us cleaner air to breathe… but if anything is going to work we all need to do our part too! We’re starting a new initiative called Map London to do just that.
We’re calling on Londoners – whether you’re part of a cycling group, running squad, community, school or family group – to help us do something that’s never been done before… help build the first up-to-date air pollution data map of a city.
To do this, we are looking to set up a few thousand CleanSpace Tags with you (and your group, friends or family) so that you can start seeing and understanding the air you breathe, wherever you are. Working together, we will help Map London, creating a sophisticated picture of the city’s air pollution. From there we hope to give everyone – individuals, schools, businesses and government – the information they need to take real action!
Whether it’s mapping the area around and in your home, work or child’s school; equipping the members of your cycling club with Tags for their regular rides and daily commutes; walking your local areas and green spaces; or working with friends to map air pollution across famous city attractions, there’s a role for all of us to play.
To get involved, fill out the short form below and tell us how you would use your CleanSpace Tag to MapLondon.
