The paper is the result of a research project that was conducted to assess the impact of urban air pollution from PM particles and raise people's awareness. The goal of the project was to identify air pollutants and to propose measures to overcome the problem. The research was attended by professors, young people and citizens supported by the local community. The monitoring values of PM10 at the measuring points show that the ambient air of the city of Bitola is permanently exacerbated with a negative impact on human health. Exposure to people with polluted air has shown significant changes in health status. These changes can be an indicator of environmental stress caused by uncontrolled urban air pollution. The survey ends with a draft measures to reduce air pollution in the city.
