There has been growing interest in independent air monitoring in Ukrainian industrial towns due to the lack of publicly available data on air pollution. More and more activists, environmental organizations and residents of industrial cities want to learn what they breathe, so they buy measuring instruments or produce their own with which they connect to alternative platforms. Arnika decided to meet the demand for information on independent monitoring and on 29.5.-3.6.2019 it organized a lecture tour of Czech experts from the Atmospheric Aerosol Research Group around Ukraine. The aim of the visit of the Czech scientists was to present the specific experience of the Czech Republic in the field of air pollution research.
