On the run up to a larger event at the V&A's Digital Futures in October, the Clear Air Tech London Meetup was set up to ignite conversations among people who care about cleaner air in the city and that would like to explore "How Technology could help solve London's outdoor pollution problem”.

At every meetup (including this one) we’ll hear from innovative tech startups and/or initiatives working towards better air quality . The hope is that, as we progress, we may map the Clean Air Tech ecosystem, discover new approaches & business models, and see how these players may be aligned with one another other to generate impact.

If you are passionate about this topic and would like to get involved please message us!
