What is KAIRE?


Kentuckiana Air Education (KAIRE) is the Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District’s community outreach and education program. Enhancing our neighborhoods and quality of life helps to ensure environmental and economic health for residents. KAIRE's primary goal is to increase public awareness of the impact individual choices can have on local air quality.

Kentuckiana Air Education was established in 2001 to educate the public about the benefits of clean air, with an emphasis on voluntary measures individuals can take to make a difference in the fight against air pollution. KAIRE raises awareness of the health effects of poor air quality and builds community involvement by encouraging the people of Kentuckiana to make air-friendly choices in their daily lives.

Kentuckiana is a unique place, and it requires a unique, locally managed approach to air pollution education, communication, and outreach. KAIRE is managed by people who live and work in Kentuckiana, and thus are acutely aware of the challenges (and opportunities) that air pollution presents to this area.

Progress Made on Air Quality, But Work Remains

There was a time in Louisville when you couldn’t walk downtown without getting flecks of black soot on your clean white shirt. The sun was blotted out by air pollution from factory smokestacks, motor vehicles, and coal furnaces in homes.
