Citizen science insights on air quality in 3 cities

This article was first published on

The Cityzens for Clean Air campaign, part of the UrbanBetter Cityzens initiative, aims to amplify youth voices with advocacy on air pollution, climate and health using citizen scientist data generated by young people.

The report is based on PM2.5 and NO2 air quality data collected by the citizen scientists who participated in the campaign across the various cities. The data used to create this report was generated by a number of low-cost air quality monitoring devices i.e Flow2 by Plume Labs and Airbeam devices which were carried by the citizen scientists during the campaign runs. This was supplemented by data from regulatory monitors operated by the city authorities.
