National Clean Air Day

Air pollution is a major problem.

The World Health Organisation and the UK Government recognise that air pollution is the largest environmental health risk we face today. It causes heart and lung diseases, is linked to low birth weight and children’s lung development and may even contribute to mental health issues. Every year, air pollution causes up to 36,000 deaths in the UK.

We need your help! Join us on National Clean Air Day 2022 for activities such as car-free days or planting trees in public spaces – all of which will reduce levels of harmful pollutants in our atmosphere. You can also take part by reducing your own emissions at home with simple changes like switching off lights when you leave a room or using energy efficient appliances where possible. Together we can make sure everyone has access to clean air!

Coordinated by Global Action Plan, Clean Air Day brings together communities, businesses, education and the health sector:

to improve public understanding of air pollution, both indoors and outdoors

to build awareness of how air pollution affects our health

to explain some of the easy things we can all do to tackle air pollution, helping to protect the environment and our health too.
