Ycan took to the streets of New Delhi on Earth Day, 22nd April to assess the city's Air quality. We launched a drive to understand people's perception on air quality and monitor PM 2.5 in multiple locations.

 

This initiative, called 'Better Air, Better Earth', involved young people across north south, central, east and west Delhi assessing PM 2.5 levels with mobile sensors throughout the day for two days to help record PM levels at different times and gauge sources around this.

 

We also engaged in interviewing more than 1500 people on the streets to gauge their understanding on air quality. The survey was conducted using a questionnaire developed by the Clean Air Asia team.

 

Volunteers from the Embassy of the United States of America supported the mission of YCAN in gauging the city's air quality. Members from the Canadian High Commission, the Swedish Embassy and the Spanish Embassy also joined the YCAN members on Earth Day to help in the perception survey and monitoring activity.

 

The same perception survey was conducted by YCAN volunteers in the city- Gandhinagar at 2nd& 3rd September 2017.  The drive was launched to understand people's perception on air quality and monitor PM 2.5 in multiple locations in Gandhinagar.
