Healthy human lives depend on clean air. But, air pollution is recognised by the World Health Organisation as one of the biggest environmental health issues of our time, contributing to around 40,000 UK deaths every year. So, how can you tell if the air is clean? The answer is now at hand, thanks to researchers at RBGE who have published an easy-to-use air quality self-assessment package that could ultimately help save lives through people power.
