Welcome to #AirHack, our 2-day event working with Defra to explore air quality – the problems, the data, the solutions.
We’re looking for anyone and everyone insterested in air quality – data scientist, programmer, technologist, maker, story-teller, activist, analyst, policy maker, etc. Maybe you’ve been using any of the commercial air sensors (or DIY solution) and want to talk about your findings, or maybe you work in health and want to see how Defra data could be used in future health planning, or maybe you have ideas about reducing air pollution.
Venue: Fred Perry House, Edward Street, Stockport, SK1 3UR
