World Ventilation Day (WV8D) happens annually on 8th November and is supported by professional and trade bodies, universities, and environmental groups worldwide, aims to raise awareness of the vital role played by ventilation in supporting people’s health, well-being, and productivity.

Last year’s inaugural WV8D (#WorldVentil8Day) saw webinars, in person talks, new research, and a range of ventilation experiments carried out on the day demonstrating how good ventilation can reduce exposure to air pollutants and infectious diseases, aid human productivity, improve sleep, and reduce mould and damp in buildings. This year’s theme is ‘Breathe Better Live Better’ and we are keen to use it to highlight the importance of good ventilation for is important for health and raise awareness of the significant consequences of poor indoor air in homes, schools, workplaces and public buildings. The day can also be used to champion the people behind ventilation research, guidance and practice.
