Air quality group offers breath of fresh air – US Ignite

The Air Quality Workgroup was a notable success story for the US Ignite Communities program in 2023. Building on a partnership that began in 2021 with five communities, the peer-learning group expanded to more than 100 individuals over the past year, including representatives from cities, research institutions, federal partners, nonprofits, and environmental quality organizations. The founding five communities – Salt Lake City, UT; Chattanooga, TN; Cleveland, OH; Kansas City, MO; and Springfield, MA – originally shared their experiences developing low-cost air quality monitoring networks using TELLUS Networked Sensor Solutions. That effort attracted other community leaders, who began to meet regularly to discuss their own air quality challenges, observations, and ideas for solutions. US Ignite published a blog series with key learnings and insights from the workgroup over the summer:


Moreover, the workgroup launched an ongoing Air Quality ACTION Seminar Series. These sessions start with a short presentation from a field expert or practitioner, followed by a question and answer section, and closing with an engaging roundtable discussion and share-out.
