Environmental Education on Air Pollution

We believe everyone deserves the right to know the truth about air pollution and the air pollution industry. As such, a major mission of Smart Air is to share air pollution information in a free and honest way. We do this by holding air pollution workshops,  running experiments on air pollution, and providing open data to empower everyone to learn the truth about the air pollution industry.

A cornerstone of our educational efforts is our DIY Air pollution workshops. Smart Air has run over 250 workshops educating more than 3,000 people all over China about the dangers of air pollution and how people can best protect themselves. We run workshops in partnership with NGOs, non-profits, companies, schools and other networks. We believe that through these interaction, we can continue the conversation and more people will understand that clean air does not need to be a luxury.



Let us know what you need at least two weeks in advance, and we’ll start planning:

We do workshops in English or Chinese. Just let us know which you’d prefer.
For situations where it’s not convenient for everyone to build a purifier, we also do workshops with a single demonstration purifier.
