Through education, Smart Air aims to increase awareness on air pollution and that it doesn’t cost thousands of RMB to get clean air. We do this through experiments and open data, and participating in exhibitions such as the Beijing Design Week.

A cornerstone of our educational efforts is the Smart Air workshops which we conduct all year round. To date, we’ve done more than 250 workshops all over China. 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.
