Dear Backers,  

We are happy to announce that the Smog Free Tower is taking the centre stage at the World Economic Forum - Annual Meeting of the New Champions in Dalian, China! Daan has been a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum since 2015, and we are excited to spread the dream of clean air with mayors and governors who are attending the forum this year.

During the summit, Daan is going to emphasize his vision for Schoonheid, a Dutch word for beauty with two layers of meaning beauty and cleanliness. “True beauty is clean air and it should not be taken for granted.” - Daan Roosegaarde 

He will also talk about how nature inspires him and what he plans to expand Smog Free Project. You can read a brief on the World Economic Forum blog, which was also published on Forbes with the wonderful title, "Here's Why We Need More Imagination, Not More Technology Or Money." Wouldn't you agree?

We also share the next stages of development of the project in China. Our local Chinese partner, a pioneer in supporting new environmental technology in China, will build more Smog Free Towers across in China! Studio Roosegaarde will continue Smog Free Journey in other countries with new additions to the project such as Smog Free Bicycle Concept. You can read the full press release here.
