Since 2017, the AIR (Action for Interdisciplinary Air Pollution Research) Network has brought together researchers and people who live and work in informal settlements to discuss the issue, raise awareness and explore new approaches to tackle air quality. The Network used a mixture of methods to discuss, explore and engage with the issue of air pollution, including theatre, visual arts, games, story-telling and music. This free exhibition charts the project’s development and successes, featuring photography, community art, and mapping. This event is hosted by the Centre for Global Health Histories.

Health in Urban Environments Event Series
This event forms part of the Health in Urban Environments Event Series where York Environmental Sustainability Institute (YESI), Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre (IGDC), Wolfson Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratories (WACL) and several Research Champions are joining forces to host an event series to explore Urban Living-related research and innovation at the University of York.
Through a series of workshops, lunchtime seminar, full day events and discussion sessions, we will gain insight into the historical development of the world’s cities and the social and environmental consequences of urbanisation.
