WHAT ARE AIR CHAMPIONS

Click here for details ▼

The Air Champions – Citizen Scientists network consists of passionate, community-health focused volunteers committed to creating thriving neighborhoods free from air pollution. The initiative was launched on Earth Day, April 22, 2020 by McMac Cx, a Social Enterprise, in partnership with the Environment Tech company Plume Labs.


WHAT DO AIR CHAMPIONS DO?

Air Champions use the latest collaborative, citizen-science focused technology, or “Social Tech”, to gather and share air quality data—at school, at home, at work, on daily commutes, and wherever life takes us.

Collecting and sharing hyper-local, real-time air quality data can be used to help individuals and institutions make better decisions. This type of information directly links environmental awareness with our ability to be our best selves and sets the foundation for collaborative, evidence-based action against air pollution.

Our first goal is to recruit 10,000 “Air Champions” in the Houston, Texas within the year, focusing on traditionally underrepresented at-risk communities.

Scholarships for technology toolkits, including Flow 1 personal pollution sensors (https://plumelabs.com/en/flow/) are available for Students.
