Air Champions - Social Change Scientists
Air Champions - Social Change Scientists (ACSCS) are a global community of passionate humans committed to creating thriving futures free from air pollution. The initiative was launched on Earth Day, April 22, 2020 by McMac CX in partnership with the environment tech company Plume Labs.
Why Air Champions?
How do you know if Air Champions might be a great fit for you? It's pretty simple actually! If you believe it is a basic right for you, your friends, and your family to breathe healthy air, you've already met the first criteria!
What Do Air Champions Do?
ACSCS uses advanced citizen-science focused technology, or "Impact Advocacy Tech", to gather, analyze, and share hyper-local personal air quality data - at school, at home, at work, on daily commutes, and wherever life takes us.
Armed with this data, anyone can become neighborhood advocates, identifying sources of air pollution, better understand connections to human behaviors, develop prevention and remediation plans for their communities, and share their findings with peers and policy makers.

CELF Air Champions
Children’s Environmental Literacy Foundation (CELF) - Air Champions

These educators have participated in CELF’s Civic Science: Inquiry to Action program and thus have gained a deep understanding of project-based learning and how to implement related instructional practices into the classroom, connecting students to real-world challenges in their own neighborhoods.

"Communities Under Stress"
Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)
Poor indoor environmental conditions such as access to daylighting, proper ventilation, filtration, comfort and lighting controls, high levels of volatile organic compounds, etc. are more prevalent in communities of color.
McMac CX provides prepackaged solutions for deployment by municipalities, school boards, parent organizations, teachers, administrators, and students.
We provide limited free Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) monitoring that allows you to understand the burdens your employees, students, and community must overcome due to substandard conditions in your school or municipal buildings. We can then work with you to develop a plan for deploying the right corrective actions.
