As the Breathe Clean project comes to an end, Mapping for Change will be hosting a feedback session to present the findings of our 6-month air quality monitoring project. The event will consist of an in-depth discussion of the results and discuss the next steps we can all take to continue to make improvements to the borough of Tower Hamlets.
The event is in support of our Breathe Clean project, which aims to address and monitor the nitrogen dioxide levels within Tower Hamlets. The feedback session will give residents the chance to get a more granular picture of the situation within the borough.
The session will also be an opportunity to hear about other environmental projects happening in the borough from Sustrans, Trees for Cities and Women’s Environmental Network. Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Air Quality, Councillor Rachel Blake, will also be speaking about actions already being taken in Tower Hamlets to reduce air pollution.
In partnership with Tower Hamlets Council, we have been supporting members of the community to collect data, using a citizen science approach, to understand what the current air pollution levels are. We selected 29 locations within the borough to be monitored including around homes, places of works, schools and recreational spots.
The Breathe Clean event will take place at the Tramshed Community Hub in Bethnal Green on 19th January from 2 pm – 4 pm. All local businesses and residents of Tower Hamlets are invited to come along for some tea and biscuits and find out more about the project!
Please email email@example.com if you would like to come along so we can save you a seat.
If you can’t make it, or simply can’t wait, the results for the six months monitoring are available to view in our community maps platform.

Maps can show you where you are. But a good map can also show you where you want to go, and how to get there.
With a map, you can communicate, analyse and enact change. We work with communities to achieve social and environmental change in their local area.
Environmental problems affect us all. Citizen Science can give you a voice. Let’s collect the data we need to raise awareness and fight for change.
Low tech and affordable methods mean that everyone within a community can get involved and become a citizen scientist.
Does your organisation work with community groups? We can design and implement a unique engagement approach, tailored to your particular requirements.
With over 15 years experience in the community and voluntary sector, we understand how to reach and involve people.
