Want to know what the air quality is like in your neighbourhood? Get involved in the Love Lambeth Air project!

What is the Lambeth Loves Clean Air project?

Lambeth council, in partnership with Mapping for Change, is providing diffusion tubes to residents and businesses to measure nitrogen dioxide outside their home or office.

How long is the project?

We want to monitor nitrogen dioxide from October 2016 until April 2017.

What will I do?

Every month you will change the diffusion tube outside your home or office and return the old tube to Mapping for Change. There is also an app available for residents and businesses to record relevant details about the location and local conditions.

What will happen to the old tube?

Mapping for Change will send the tube to the lab for analysis and the results will be made available on their website.

Is there any other help?

At the start of the project there will be a workshop to explain how a diffusion tube works and a demonstration of how to change the tube each month. There will be another workshop six months later to discuss the monitoring results. Both workshops will also include a discussion on ways to help improve air quality and also reduce personal exposure.

How do I join?

Please email by 14 October 2016 and tell us:

  • The address where you want to locate a diffusion tube and whether it is your home or where you work
  • Problems and concerns with air quality in this location and why you would like to carry out the monitoring
  • Your ideas to improve air quality in your local area

When will I find out if my application to join the project has been successful?

We will contact everyone who has applied by 17 October 2016. Even if you aren’t given diffusion tubes, you will still be welcome at our workshops to discuss ways to help improve air quality and reduce your personal exposure.

    I would like to monitor air quality in my road (Shrubbery Rd) but as I have caring responsibilities I may have difficulty in attending training session so if you could let me know when and where these are to be held I can then say yes or no.


    Hi there

    We are Camden Air Action, can we ask for support to do this in our area.?
