Trying to lead a healthy life in a polluted city can be sometimes challenging. Whilst Beijing air quality problem is widely acknowledged, the information how to protect yourself can be unclear, as well as understanding what smog actually is.

Is it possible to breathe clean air in a polluted city? Is wearing a mask enough? What is the real impact of living in Beijing? What is the meaning of PM2.5? 

We invited Yann Boquillod to bust some myths about air pollution. Using data generated insights and information, Yann will bring clarity to the foggy world of particles and smog and share the information you need to breathe the healthiest air possible in Beijing.

Yann Boquillod is the founder of AirVisual (now part of IQAir). He developed the world's most popular air pollution app "AirVisual" and the smart air quality monitor used around the planet to inform and protect families, schools, embassies and companies.
