Air quality monitoring and awareness
buliding programme for schools
Keeping in mind the importance of sensitizing teachers and, through them, the school children in Delhi, about increasing air pollution in the city and the related problems , TERI implemented hands-on methods of monitoring and analysis, workshops, development of resource material, seminars, training programmes, etc.
study was phased and in the initial phase, 50 schools in Delhi were
selected, and grouped together in 5 clusters. One school in each cluster
was identified as a nodal school and air-sampling equipment was installed
here so that it was accessible to 9 other schools in the cluster.
Air quality monitoring of criteria of pollutants such as RSPM (respirable
suspended particulate matter) , SO2 (sulphur dioxide), and NO2 (nitrogen
dioxide) at all the 5 locations was carried out on a seasonal basis.
