Shape upcoming EIC campaign on building resilient post-pandemic communities

To help shape an upcoming joint EIC and ACE campaign on building resilient post-pandemic communities, members working in air quality are being asked to share how they are helping to create clean and healthy indoor and outdoor environments.

The campaign will explore what is needed to ensure our communities are resilient to future waves of coronavirus and even future pandemics. Improving indoor air quality has a vital role to play in ensuring our public, private and shared spaces are resilient to air borne diseases. Of course, this raises questions around the difficulties of retrofitting air quality measures, and the costs involved too.

Other questions around air quality focus on the issue more generally and its increasing significance in light of a renewed focus on health and wellbeing, especially when it comes to the virus’ affect on lung capacity. With air pollution falling in lockdown, what are the key takeaways as society returns to normality? 

EIC members are being asked to share any thoughts, ideas, or best-practice with EIC ahead of the campaign which should launch later this year. Please email Guto Davies today.

Commenting on the call for case studies, Guto Davies, head of policy at EIC said: “I know EIC members have some very good stories to tell in this space and I’m looking forward to finding out more. This will be a great opportunity to showcase the products, services and technology of EIC members and also a chance to shine a spotlight on their ingenuity too.”
