About Clean Air Day

 

Let's protect our children's health from air pollution this #CleanAirDay on 17 June 2021.

 

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

Clean Air Day is the UK's largest air pollution campaign, engaging thousands of people at hundreds of events, and reaching millions more through the media. This year Clean Air Day is taking place on 17 June 2021.

Clean Air Day: 17 June 2021

Led by Global Action Plan, Clean Air Day brings together communities, businesses, schools and the health sector to:

 

  •  Improve public understanding of air pollution.
  •  Build awareness of how air pollution affects our health.
  •  Explain the easy actions we can all do to tackle air pollution, helping to protect the environment and our health.
