7 million deaths resulted from air pollution exposure.
Indoor and outdoor air pollution are scientifically linked to cancers, asthma, and congenital heart conditions affecting people every day. We focus on marginalized areas where the harm is greatest and technologies haven't reached. Air quality isn’t just the concern of a single nation, our fight calls for universal cooperation.
The Fair Air Coalition (FAC) holds monthly forums, shares current research, and partners with individuals and organizations striving to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals #3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 17 by 2030.
12% of cities worldwide comply with international air quality guidelines
