We spend over 70% of our time indoors and the quality of air in the indoor environment has a significant impact on our health and performance. Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can lead to discomfort and ill health; and absenteeism and lower productivity in the workplace, especially for youngsters. Good IAQ, on the other hand, safeguards the health of the building occupants and contributes to their comfort and well-being. The Government is dedicated to promote good IAQ and public understanding of its importance. Aimed at further enhancement of promotion of IAQ awareness in schools, this project develops a total of three sets of teaching resources, which are for the “General Studies” subject of Primary 4 - 6, the “Science Education” subject of Secondary 1 - 3, and the “Liberal Studies” subject of Secondary 4 – 6, respectively. School teachers can use this teaching resource to enrich their class contents and students can get better understanding of IAQ. Most importantly, students are able to learn some simple but handy practices from this teaching resource and apply them to daily life to improve the IAQ of their surroundings.This is the first teaching resources on indoor air quality for Primary and Secondary Schools in Hong Kong.
