Chiang Mai Governor Charoenrit Sanguansat officiated over the ‘Add love to the air’ event at Tha Pae Gate today, as part of the campaign to raise awareness of the problems and challenges of the current air pollution crisis.
The Chiang Mai municipality has been tasked with organising this campaign, bringing together many organisations to work together to spread understanding across the province as to the dangers of PM2.5.
It is hoped that with increased awareness people will burn less and fix their vehicle exhausts. It is also hoped that people will plant more trees, said a representative of the governor.
The annual spraying of water has also begun by the municipality who have also setup numerous Safety Zones across the city for those seeing refuge from the air pollution.
