Did you know that you can support the development of Thailand's first citizen driven Clean Air Act?
Air pollution is an invisible enemy, killing over 4 million people globally each year.
A clean air future requires systems-level change. Everyone - from civil society, the private sector and government - has a role to play. Aligning and prioritizing action based on data and facts is essential.
We believe that everyone has a right to breathe clean air. To catalyze change, join the Circular Design Lab and the Thailand Clean Air Network in this Digital Roadshow: 'Getting from PM 2.5to Zero' to learn and take action for the #right2cleanair.- and support the establishment of Clean Air Policy. Our volunteer group teamed up with the Thailand Clean Air Network to develop this awareness and action raising roadshow.

LEARN WHY WE HAVE AN AIR POLLUTION PROBLEM - AND- WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!
From August-December 2020 we hosted a "digital roadshow" - a series of online sessions with the authors of the Blue Paper, yet also those working in the space from a creative angle. We heard from entrepreneurs, artists, musicians and others from international organizations. More below. All recordings and summaries are below. The goal is to raise awareness and gain more citizen signatures to support establishment of the first Clean Air Act of it's kind in Thailand.
INHALE AND LEARN
ABOUT THE LEARNING TRACK
In this part of the Roadshow series, that took place from August - December last year, participants gained an understanding of the multiple causes and effects of air pollution as well as what the options are for sustainable solutions- particular in the context of South East Asia. The audience also was equipped to understand the process to drive legislative change as a group of citizens, and have an idea where they may be able to support the work being done.
This track of the Roadshow series was designed to accelerate the understanding of air pollution issues - particularly PM2.5 - in Thailand by diving deep into the Clean Air Blue Paper written by Thailand Clean Air Network (TCAN), an interdisciplinary group of volunteers working to affect change and ensure the right to clean air for all, at the highest policy level. The Blue Paper authors were featured speakers- so we could learn from the scientists, environmental lawyers, health workers and researchers who have been working closest to the issue.
EXHALE AND ACT
ABOUT THE CREATIVE COMMUNITY AND ACTION TRACK
In this part of the Roadshow series we expanded on the materials covered in the INHALE and LEARN sessions by providing creative and interactive space, workshops and forums to help participants protect themselves against air pollution as well as get involved in the solutions.
The workshops also pulled knowledge and work from volunteer groups, NGOs, companies and social enterprises working on initiative around the issues in Thailand and beyond. The offline workshops featured citizen science components (DIY Air Filters for the most vulnerable- funded by the International Development Innovation Network) and Systemic Design Workshops for those who wanted to develop more possible interventions. We are happy to feature and amplify existing and ongoing efforts too- reach out if you would like to collaborate or have us share your work.
