Let Our Children Breathe - Support & Protect Clean Air for the future generation

Many residents have started to receive the HK$10,000 cash handout which is part of the government’s relief measure. How would you spend the money wisely?

Perhaps you can set aside a portion of your handout to make a positive impact on society and bring affordable health benefits for future generations.

Your generous support to our program “Let Our Children Breathe” would be a great encouragement to raise public awareness on air pollution and enhance youth empowerment.

The program aims to identify the level of air pollution exposure in the school areas and address its adverse health impact on children’s growth, by facilitating various engaging programs and air monitoring activities to strengthen the environmental health literacy on air pollution among the public.

Air sensor for Let Our Children Breathe

Air Data Management System development

  • We are developing a community-friendly air data management system that includes air sensors and an open-source data mapping platform.
  • This lightweight sensor can visualize the level of air pollution along walking routes and understand it correlates air pollution to the level of health risk.
  • HK$800 per sensor to support the development of the air sensor with access to upload data on the online map. We provide free rent of air sensor to students and the public who join the Let Our Children Breathe program

 

Pollution measurement - Let Our Children Breathe

Air Quality Measurement

  • Youth will get involved in the street air measurement by deploying nitrogen dioxide (NO2) diffusion tubes.
  • The tubes are used to collect air samples for a certain period of time and find out the roadside pollution level. The tubes are supplied and analysed by laboratories.

NO2 tool kit (Lab Test & Training material) for students:
HK$300 per tube — Collect roadside air data for 2 weeks
HK$2100 total of 7 tubes — For each school to collect 2 week’s roadside air data
* Including administration cost and delivery fee for sending tubes to the lab in the UK

We conducted two roadside NO2 measurements in Sham Shui Po & Central over the past year. The full measurement report can be downloaded on CAN website:
