CleanAir in Greece
CleanAir in Greece is an independent platform meant to inform the public about the day to day Air Quality in Greece, with advice on how to protect ourselves from the dangers of Air Pollution.
CleanAir in Greece was created in order to inform the public about the issue of Air Pollution in our country, because Air Pollution is a serious health issue that nowadays causes 1 in 9 deaths worldwide but few know about it. Air pollution ranks nowadays as the fourth global killer after High Blood Pressure, Smoking and High Blood Sugar. Again, we don’t know anything about it.
Greece still lacks access to basic air quality data and has a very small number of official Air Quality monitor stations. Furthermore, there is no official discussion about Air Pollution in our country (and if there is, we the citizens don’t hear anything about it), hence the need for an independent platform to inform the public about it.
