IVE’s Applied Creativity Labs in Bradford to find new ways to reduce air pollution

Born in Bradford’s ‘BiB Breathes’ study is a partnership between Born in Bradford and Bradford Council and has been set up to evaluate the impact of the Bradford Clean Air Plan on pollution and health within the city. Air pollution causes up to 64,000 deaths every year in the UK and Bradford data shows that is responsible for a third of children’s asthma within the city. The BiB breathes team are working with schools across the district to train primary school-age pupils to monitor pollution on their journey to and from school and to find ways of helping families to reduce their exposure.
