We all know air pollution in London is bad but how bad is it exactly where we live?
To find out what the situation is exactly in our part of North West London, Transition Kensal to Kilburn and Transition Willesden have started an air pollution monitoring project on September 24th.
We've been inspired by a similar project conducted in Camden. Dee Searle, from the Camden Green Party and Transition Kentish Town, came to TTKK open meeting last April.

If you want to receive regular updates about this project and/or want to share articles and other bits of information about air pollution please join this group.
