Launch of the ‘Visible’ air pollution initiative
Very much looking forward to the launch of our initiative: Let’s Make Air Pollution Visible. The initiative builds on extensive current media interest in poor air quality, and is bringing together academics, businesses, government, and communities to better measure and mitigate air pollution.
The launch is happening at the Wellcome Trust at 9am on Monday 29th June. The address is 215 Euston Road, London.
Registration starts at 8:30 and the event will finish before noon. Attendees will include policy-makers, influencers, facilitators, and many of our partners. There will be plenty of time for networking.

For those that don’t know what we’re about:
Deliver Change is a non-profit that focusses on delivering commercially sustainable solutions and projects that can change people’s lives for the better. We work with, and are supported by, a range of businesses, local and central government, and many universities.
The Deliver Change AirSensa project is building the world’s largest network of urban air quality monitors, collecting key air quality data right down to the individual street level. Piloted and initially rolling out in London, AirSensa provides a critical step in the solution to the issue of urban air pollution bringing us closer to making UK cities healthier, more liveable and economically productive.
The ‘Visible’ initiative launches AirSensa on the national stage, building the monitoring network across the country to generate the data needed to plan effective avoidance strategies and reduction solutions.
