We’re partnering with Open Streets Toronto and the Yonge Street B.I.A. to monitor air quality during this year’s Open Streets days!
Want to know what air quality looks like at an intersection Yonge and Dundas when you take the cars off the road? Join us in monitoring air quality and spreading the word about the INHALE Project, Canada’s first Community Air Monitoring initiative.
With portable, easy-to-use air monitoring equipment, our volunteer Community Air Trackers have been biking, walking and rolling through their neighborhoods, gathering mappable air quality data as they go. We’re using this data to spark conversations on how we can improve street-level air quality.
We want to take this conversation to the streets of downtown Toronto on Sunday, August 21st and Sunday, September 18th. Stop by our air monitoring stations or sign up to volunteer!
Stationary Air Monitors:
You’ll be stationed at one of 3 air monitoring locations, where you’ll ensure the equipment is on and running and share some information about the project and the data we're collecting to those who are passing by.
Mobile Air Monitor:
Strap an air monitor to your bike, stroller, backpack or mobility device and gather data along the Open Streets route!
Please contact Jolene at [email protected] if you have any questions or accessibility concerns.
Will you volunteer?
Please indicate which volunteers roles you are interested in and which Open Streets days you are available.
