Five geodesic domes each contain carefully created environments, emulating different atmospheric conditions globally. Visitors begin in Tautra in Norway, breathing in clean smelling air and then continuing through to the cities of London, New Delhi, Beijing and Sao Paulo which between them suffer from some of the lowest air quality in the world. Each replicates nuanced polluted environments containing varying levels of ozone, particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide. London with its invisible but high levels of nitrogen dioxide sits next to New Delhi where the air is instead filled with a haze of airborne particles. It is estimated that the average Londoner, exposed to the current levels of pollution, loses up to 16 months of their life, while for a resident of New Delhi it could cut short life by around 4 years.
The Pollution Pods has travelled to COP26 visiting cities across the UK with 'Ride for their Lives', a group of passionate paediatric healthcare providers who have cycled from Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London.
