Clean Air Day  is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about air pollution, share information with friends and colleagues, and take positive action help make the air cleaner and healthier for everyone. 

Air pollution is real and harms the health of millions. It is now at such a scale that new national and international legislation backed-up by intervention is urgently needed. After years of breaching guidelines, the current UK government has produced the draft ‘Clean Air Strategy 2018’ currently out for consultation, so please respond and help shape this important piece of legislation. 

Beyond that, there are lots of simple actions that individuals can do to protect themselves, and parents to protect their children, whose lungs are developing and are particularly vulnerable.
In preparation for Clean Air Day, a number of toolkits have been made available, for example for Schools Workplaces, Communities and many more. Well presented, easy to read and packed full of simple to follow advice and suggestions, these toolkits are essential reading.
