ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE AIR QUALITY PROGRAM
Educating our youth and community about the health of the air we breathe is a primary goal of the Environmental Justice Air Quality (EJ Air) team. To achieve this, we are partnering with several organizations to create an outdoor education program centered around air quality monitoring.
Throughout this program, students will learn how to collect air quality data on their school campus and/or in the bosque using professional equipment that the Environmental Justice Air team is using to measure the air quality throughout the community. Students will be led through the data collection processes and analysis to give them autonomy over their data and proper understanding of the air quality. Following the analysis of their data, these students will come up with ideas on what they can do to help improve air quality on a personal, community, and city/county level.
