The Ardee School Partners with Nirvana Being To Unleash Air Pollution Free Greener Campus

In a first of its kind initiative in India, the New Friends Colony-based school to use Nirvana Being's technology to make its "my right to breathe" campaign a reality.

The Ardee School, New Friends Colony, one of Delhi’s leading K-12 schools, in collaboration with Nirvana Being, the market leader in Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Compliance, has transformed the ambience of the school in terms of the air quality the children breathe in. The school is one of the founder members of the campaign "my right to breathe" and under the guidance of Nirvana Being, they have created a revolution in the school education sector.

The school classifies days as Yellow and Red depending on the pollution level range and follows a system of flagging the same. This has been made possible with the deployment of monitors across the school premises. It alerts the students on the adverse impact of the air quality and prepares them for emergency preventative care.

The School suspends all outdoor activity once the PM2.5 levels exceed 200ug/m3 in line with their policy of limiting exposure of children. Nirvana Being has retrofitted the ventilation systems in the lower ground floor area of the school with MERV 14 rated Honeywell Electronic Air Cleaners to reduce PM2.5 levels by 80-85% from ambient levels, down to 0.3 microns.

Jai Dhar Gupta, Founder of Nirvana Being, said, "It is imperative for school authorities to realize the detrimental impact of air pollution on a child’s development. The effects can be severe in terms of physical and cognitive impacts. Thus, this issue needs to be actively and aggressively addressed, to limit the exposure of children. If we want a healthy nation and a better tomorrow, we have a responsibility to deal with this concern in schools, where children spend a bulk of their day."

Shefali Varma, Chairperson of The Ardee School, said, "Children are most vulnerable to the rising pollution level, which is not improving any time soon. The effects of breathing in the impure air are clearly visible in their overall growth. We cannot afford to neglect this grave situation any more. Children spend 8 hours a day with us. It is our responsibility to ensure that our students are protected and this is what we are trying to achieve."
