"From Michelangelo's intricate sculptures to cutting-edge UX design, the link lies in their shared commitment to detail, user-centricity, and storytelling. Sculptors express through marble, designers through pixels, but both aim to captivate, inspire, and convey a message. The art of creating unforgettable experiences transcends mediums"

Breathe Easy Delhi: Innovative Solutions for Winter Air Quality

Problem Statement

The winter months in Delhi NCR are plagued by severe air quality issues, often reaching hazardous levels. Traditional measures have shown limited effectiveness. Design innovative, sustainable, and scalable solutions to control and improve air quality during this critical period.

Key Considerations:

•  Seasonal Variability: Solutions should specifically address the unique challenges presented during winter, where factors like temperature inversion contribute to the trapping of pollutants.
•  Community Involvement: Encourage community engagement and participation in the solution. How can residents actively contribute to and benefit from the initiative?
•  Scalability and Accessibility: Develop solutions that are scalable and can be implemented at both individual and community levels. Consider the accessibility of the solutions across diverse socio-economic groups.
•  Collaboration with Stakeholders: Propose strategies for collaboration between government bodies, private enterprises, NGOs, and citizens. How can a multi-stakeholder approach be fostered?

•  Policy Recommendations: Explore innovative policy recommendations that could be implemented to support and sustain air quality improvements. How can regulations be crafted to incentivise positive changes?
