London hosts some of the most polluted areas in the world. The city’s air pollution levels frequently breach EU safety limits and kills approximately 9,500 people annually as a result, according to King’s College London. Heathrow Airport is the largest air terminus in the UK and is a major source of air pollution in London.

Yodit Stanton (Founder and CEO, Open Sensors) will discuss how the Breathe Heathrow team deployed air quality and noise sensors in the gardens of volunteers who live around Heathrow to collect data that can help measure the environmental impact of the airport.
