Launched in 2018, the World Athletics Air Quality project is part of a broad campaign to raise awareness about air pollution around the world and the harmful impact it has on elite athletes and recreational runners. Identifying sources of local air pollution by installing monitors that collect air quality data during athletics events, and finding the best solutions to combat it, is crucial.
