Ecology Ottawa will be presenting the results of their air quality monitoring campaign, Breathe Easy. Over 120 volunteers monitored Ottawa’s air quality this summer to identify hot spots across the city for air pollution – an important first step in sparking community dialogue around neighbourhood-level solutions to improve quality of life and the air. This webinar will also include a lively discusson with Beth Gardiner, author of Choked: Life and Breath in the Age of Air Pollution. Breathe Easy Ottawa was partially funded by EnviroCentre’s Ottawa Sustainability Fund.
