Meet 16-year-old Maya Anandan, who has come up with an innovative idea of providing hyperlocal air pollution data to the people impacted by its effects.
Delhi will remain one of the top three polluted cities in the world and population exposures to PM 2.5 are likely to increase by over 40 percent by 2050.
“With my collaboration with ‘Ambee’, we have currently been able to install five sensors across the city, New Delhi and we are planning on installing between 50 to 60 by the end of this year that can measure hyper-local data on CO2 emissions and O2 emissions,” says Maya.
Maya encourages more people to choose innovation in their adaptation to climate change and work together on developing micro-level solutions.
