Impact on Urban Health's new Health Effects of Air Pollution programme is interested in exploring how models may help us better identify impactful interventions to reduce air pollution in and around schools, while minimising the burden on school staff. Impact on Urban Health works in the London boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark is open to opportunities to validate or test models in real-world school environments. Please contact TAPAS and we'll put you in touch with the programme lead to discuss possible opportunities or to learn more about Impact on Urban Health's 10 year programme to address the health effects of air pollution.
