Contaminación del aire

Según la Organización Mundial de la Salud, aproximadamente siete millones de personas mueren cada año como resultado de la exposición a la contaminación del aire.

Sin embargo, la contaminación del aire no solo afecta gravemente la salud humana, sino también la salud de los animales y la vegetación. En las ciudades, el tráfico es una de las fuentes más significativas de contaminación del aire, y necesitamos la participación activa de los ciudadanos para abordar el problema. Dentro de MULTIPLIERS, se apoyará a los estudiantes para que tomen decisiones basadas en la evidencia científica y se conviertan en ciudadanos responsables. Comenzando en España, estudiarán cómo mejorar la calidad del aire en las ciudades mediante la recogida y análisis de datos, y discutirán con científicos, expertos en salud global y otros grupos de interés relevantes.
