First national day of air quality in France

The first national day of air quality in France was held on September 25, 2015. It was one of the actions of the roadmap of the environmental conference in 2014, whose purpose was to involve citizens on air quality.
In this context, the RNSA (French Aerobiology Network) held an information stand on pollen and ragweed in Croix Rousse in Lyon(cf pictures below)!
A hundred people passed through the stand and many documents about allergies, pollens, air quality and ragweed have been handed out.
It was a good opportunity to communicate with the general public about the content of the air in biological particles, and to give some information about their health impact.

International Ragweed Day - June 27, 2015

What is ragweed? Why worry? What do we know? What can you do?

Please find all the answers to these questions in this leaflet prepared by the International Ragweed Society for the 2015 International Ragweed Day.

Announcing the International Ragweed Day - June 27, 2015

Based on the proposition of allergologist Prof. Dr. Kristof Nekam and Dr. Tamas Komives the General Assembly of IRS (held in Ascona, Switzerland on October 6, 2011) proclaimed the first Saturday of the summer The International Ragweed Day (IRD) to increase understanding and awareness of the problem this invasive weed causes all over the world. The day was chosen because it is early in the growing season of the plant thereby gives enough time for preparations and actions.

We are inviting our members to take part in the organizing work.
