Global Action Plan has launched this year’s Clean Air Day resources ahead of the June 17 campaign.
The 2021 resources will enable audiences across the UK, from individuals, schools, businesses and community groups to demonstrate support for action on air pollution.
The resources support ‘do and say’ actions in line with this year’s Clean Air Day theme: ‘protect our children’s health from air pollution.’ Such actions include grassroots beaviour asks such as going polluting-vehicle free, to supporting high-level council action.
Specific actions include:
Larissa Lockwood, director of Clean Air at Global Action Plan, says: ‘Our children have not been exempt from the turmoil and disruption caused by the global pandemic. As we return to our lives, we must take this chance to create a healthier environment for our children to go back to – where they can learn and play safely. By protecting our children from the damage caused by air pollution, we are protecting their future.
‘This Clean Air Day we must all come together – individuals, schools, businesses, local authorities across the UK to collectively take action and seize this moment to support change, for good. We have a once in a lifetime opportunity for change. We must use it.’
