Identifying Problems and Offering Solutions: The Case of Google and Breathe London

It was released in the news last month that Google will be monitoring air quality within the Greater London Area, mapping real-time pollution levels using their StreetView cars. The new monitoring programme forms part of Breathe London, an initiative made up of a consortium of partners including various health and scientific experts as well as the Mayor of London. Breathe London aims to develop policy responses that help to improve the wellbeing and air quality of London and other cities worldwide.
