24. April 2013 • Life+ Clean Air / Clean Air Action Group

A mobile poster exhibition focusing on PM emission and ways to reduce it is considered an effective tool to outreach towards citizens. And from october 2012 to april 2013 nearly 2000 people took the chance to see the exhibition in person.

CAAG’s mobile exhibition on the topic has been installed at various locations, e.g. Törökbálint, Gödöllo and district municipalities of Budapest. To ensure wider media coverage, these events have been opened by the mayor or vice-mayor of the municipality, followed by a speech by CAAG experts. This way it is not only the actual audience who is informed but through the media a wider public is reached. The aim of the exhibition was to draw attention to the PM10 Reduction Program of the Hungarian Government.

The posters are available in Hungarian (http://levego.hu/sites/default/files/kiallitas.pdf) as well as English (http://www.levego.hu/letoltes/pm10_kiallitas_angol.pdf).
