Air Quality Sensor Installed at NIS by World Athletics

An Air Quality Sensor was set up at the National Institute for Sports (NIS), Lagos, as part of the World Athletics governing body’s (WA) attempts to reduce urban air pollution and increase physical activity.

Otonye Iworima, the project officer of Nilayo Sports Management, oversaw the installation.

She claims that the Clean Air Fund, an international organization dedicated to combating air pollution, is funding the “Running for Clean Air” initiative in Lagos, which World Athletics introduced to the city.

Promoting physical exercise and reducing air pollution in metropolitan areas are two of the project’s primary goals. Using the Access Bank Lagos Marathon as a springboard, we will gauge hyper-local air quality and disseminate the results in a massive awareness campaign, drawing on the power of the running community to inspire good change in urban areas and bring more attention to the problem of air pollution.

“The project is currently in the planning stages, and August 2024 is the official start date.”
