Students from South Thames College have teamed up with Wandsworth Council to tackle the issue of air pollution in the borough.
The young people are installing diffusion tubes to measure the levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the local area.
The readings from the tubes can provide important evidence for councils if they need to put any measures in place to protect people from potentially harmful effects of pollution.
