FinnChildAir aims to analyse children’s psychosocial well-being, lived experiences and meaning-making in indoor air problem schools in Finland. It focuses especially on children who have problems participating in class due to their symptoms.

FinnChildAir employs both a top-down (group differences, associations) and a bottom-up perspective (lived experiences, meanings), quantitative and qualitative data and various analytical methods.

FinnChildAir will increase our understanding of the kinds of identities, group processes, and social practices that slow, ambivalent and health threatened changes in our built environment produce, how different children try to make sense of these changes, and how these complex processes influence their psychosocial well-being, perceived physiological health and behaviour. Given that we are living at a time of global environmental change, it is very important to fully understand these processes. Project is funded by the Academy of Finland.
