Clean Air Network (CAN) is an independent NGO, founded in 2009. It harnesses public opinion to support the Hong Kong Government’s efforts to clean up air pollution in our city.
CAN has since become the #1 information resource about air pollution, health and policy in Hong Kong. Not just for the public, but also for associations such as the Senior Care Health & Safety Association and the Hong Kong Asthma Society, whose members are directly affected by air pollution.
ADMCF was instrumental in setting up CAN along with Civic Exchange and a number of concerned citizens. In CAN’s early years, ADMCF provided much needed seed funding as well as the strategic support and fundraising assistance, which continues today.
