Project Description

Green barriers to improve Air quality in SchoolS (GRASS)

Description

Air pollution provokes cardiovascular and respiratory diseases but also decelerates the neurodevelopment. Vertical vegetation barriers (green walls) may reduce exposure to atmospheric pollutants of vulnetrable receptors such as school children. The GRASS project will evaluate experimentaly the efficiency of green barriers at two schools of Barcelona in real-world conditions. Project funded by the Public Health Agency of Barcelona (ASPB).
