We have 2 separate funding models for the AirSensa. The first of which is sponsorship – meaning the individual or organisation is paying for the unit/units to be sited on a school or schools. In the case of sponsorship – Deliver Change keeps the right to the unit/units and the Sponsor cannot dictate where exactly the unit is sited – this remains the decision of the sponsored site.
The other model is a simple purchase agreement – where an individual or organisation buys a unit/units for their premises. In this case, the AirSensa is now the property of the purchaser and they have control about where they site the unit etc.
Even though there are only 2 models of funding – we recognise that each stakeholder has different needs and motivations to getting involved with the AirSensa Project – please select from the buttons below and go to the page most relevant to you.
There is some basic information however, which is universal – detailed below.
Educational Materials – these unique materials designed by Deliver Change will contextualise learning and offer a cross-curricular approach, allowing schools to use the data from their own unit to aid the understanding and education of their pupils and to reduce teacher workload. They have been designed for all ages (4-18) and have clear links to the curriculum &/or syllabus.
Projects, campaigns and engagement – detailed, reliable data provided from the network and the school’s individual unit will allow schools to run projects that have a lasting positive effect on the health of the students and the community.
Engaging with the community – through AirSensa, schools will be able to work together with all sectors of their local community to improve the air quality, forming lasting, mutually beneficial relationships.
Long-term data on key pollutants – they will be provided to local government as an input into transport planning and policy creation
Conducting joint research with universities – enabling us to learn more about the short & long term health effects and how to solve the pollution problem
The data will be used in powerful smartphone apps – with features like low pollution journeys and automated high pollution alerts, as well as visualised online, allowing people to make informed decision
Data from each unit is shared with Deliver Change, its policy, planning and research partners, and inputted into an aggregate overview, but is never published on a property-by-property basis. Owners can make full use of the data gathered from their buildings – to engage with employees, to tell suppliers and customers about the project, or to lobby local authorities for transport or planning alterations that could improve the nearby environment. But no one else will have access to readings from specific premises if the ‘opt-out’ clause is used – this will be available on installation.
Deliver Change offers a unique colour matching service – allowing for the AirSensa to blend with the external office colour and reduce visual pollution. This is an important factor for iconic or listed buildings.
