Get informed- join us Wednesday, September 23 as we learn from those on the ground leading the "Creative Response" to Air Pollution
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.
HOW TO JOIN
WHAT & WHEN
From August - December 2020 the Roadshow is organized into two tracks: INHALE (learn) and EXHALE (take action).
A full schedule of events is here.
ACCESS IS EASY
All events are free, open to the public, and offered in Thai and English with simultaneous translation.
Some will be in Bangkok, others fully digital.
READY? Join here
INHALE AND LEARN
ABOUT THE LEARNING TRACK
In this part of the Roadshow series, participants will gain an understanding of the multiple causes and effects of air pollution as well as what the options are for sustainable solutions. The audience will also get 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 is 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 are featured speakers- so we will 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 expand 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 will also pull knowledge and work from volunteer groups, NGOs, companies and social enterprises working on initiative around the issues in Thailand and beyond. The offline workshops (Q4 2020) will feature citizen science components (DIY Air Filters for the most vulnerable- funded by the International Development Innovation Network) and Systemic Design Workshops for citizens that want 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.
