Children are spending more and more time inside buildings and the indoor air quality can affect their health. In fact, air pollution has been linked to serious health conditions, such as cancer, asthma and cardiovascular diseases.
The indoor air quality changes according to the building, the occupants, and the type of activities taking place inside. The main way people are exposed is by inhaling pollutants, but they can also be ingested or absorbed through the skin. This set of complex factors include:

The EU Commission has been developing Level(s) - a framework of macro-objectives and indicators aiming to help building professionals to report on the environmental performance of buildings. As well as energy and material impacts, Level(s) provides a framework for reporting the quality of the indoor environment achieved with these resources, including air quality, thermal comfort, climate change resilience and life cycle cost/value.

In the EU, air pollution is responsible for around 400,000 premature deaths every year. Poor air quality can lead to lung cancer, strokes, heart attacks and acute respiratory diseases in children.
Poland’s Małopolska region, along with parts of Czechia and Slovakia, is one of Europe’s most polluted areas. Pollution is particularly heavy in winter when, to keep their homes warm, people burn coal and sometimes waste, releasing smog into the air that threatens people’s health.
