Love Lambeth Air Final Event

We have now come to an end of the six month monitoring period of our Love Lambeth Air project.

Mapping for Change, for Lambeth Council, has been providing diffusion tubes to Lambeth residents and businesses to measure nitrogen dioxide outside their home or office over the course of six months from October 2016.

Overall we had 30 participants monitoring 34 sites across the borough of Lambeth from Waterloo to West Norwood. The wide spread of monitoring was only made possible with thanks to the volunteer surveyors who every month changed the diffusion tube outside their home or office and returned the old tube for it to be processed in the lab for analysis. The results from the six months of monitoring will be made available on the Community Air Quality Map.

The project will come to a close with a final event on Wednesday 14th June. This event will include a discussion on ways to help improve air quality and reduce personal exposure and explore steps for further action.
