CAD.20.024 – effective healthy classrooms

Route: Child and adolescent development, upbringing and education

Cluster question: 078 How does the built environment affect health and wellbeing?

Unsatisfactory environmental conditions within classrooms can have both short & long-term health effects and can affect productivity or learning ability of pupils. There is a growing understanding about the importance of a healthy indoor environment. Especially the filtering out of fine dust particles PM2.5 and PM 1.0 is necessary to reduce the negative health effects on teachers and pupils on the long run. How to control the indoor conditions in relation to the outside and indoor pollution levels becomes crucial. The necessary insights in classroom ventilation in relation to sensors, data interpretation, trend signalling, continuous monitoring, fault detection & diagnosis as well as predictive maintenance needs to be developed. This in such a way that it can be transformed into practical concepts for product development of air handling manufactures, air filter producers, control companies and installers.
