Description

About the talk

Between 2016 to 2017, the Citizen Sense research project collaborated with residents of South East London to develop a citizen-led air quality monitoring project. Using John Evelyn's 17th century pamphlet on air quality (Fumifugium) as a launching point, this talk will describe the process of citizen monitoring, look at the findings from the study, as well as cover suggestions for actions to improve air quality.

Followed by Q&A
