Air quality and ventilation in schools
A person spends about 1/7 or even a quarter of their life at school. Decades of scientific and research findings show that there already exists substantial and robust evidence of how a healthy indoor climate and good ventilation affect children and their performance in schools.
The school building represents an excellent opportunity to intervene and protect the students' health. The school environment needs to be liveable and conducive to learning: full of fresh air and good (day)light, emphasising a comfortable atmosphere and providing good acoustic conditions.
Students deserve to develop, learn and thrive in a healthy environment that optimises their potential to succeed and safeguard their well-being. The future needs healthy and smart school buildings with an excellent indoor environment for healthy air in schools.
