Is the air we breathe really bad for us? As parents, we try to protect our children from whatever may harm them, but what can we do about air pollution?
OnAir is documentary for the web, a journey through the air we breathe, to understand what is happening to us and what we need to do. We started our journey in our city, Milan, the most polluted in Western Europe, and met the experts who have spent their lives trying to understand how air quality affects our health and wellbeing. We have also measured exposure to air pollution everywhere in the city, from the periphery to Piazza Duomo, in parks and nursery schools, for those who move around by bike or in strollers, inside homes or subway trains.
We have learnt that clean air is not just a question of health, but of freedom and quality of life, every day. The freedom to enjoy a walk with our children without worrying about pollutants in the air.
We are Maria Cristina Saccuman, science communicator and scientist, Alessandro Tosatto, director, photographer and video-maker, Paola Toia, social media expert, and Next New Media, an independent journalistic start-up dedicated to multimedia. But first of all we are parents. This is the trailer of OnAir
