Clean Air Day is on 20 June: Our opportunity to address air pollution

Clean Air Day provides the opportunity for environment professionals to bring the issue of air pollution to the attention of workplaces and households.  Air pollution affects us all at work, at home and out and about.  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. But it doesn’t need to be this way.  If we all work together we could have clean air. And that is what Clean Air Day is all about.

Employers have the opportunity to address this knowledge-action gap by providing information on the actions that employees can take to reduce, and protect themselves from, air pollution, and by encouraging staff to take pollution-busting action. The Clean Air Day campaign has free, ready-to-use resources such as posters, leaflets, newsletter templates and social media memes, to make it as easy as possible for every workplace to get involved with Clean Air Day
