Clean Air Day is a national air pollution campaign, coordinated by the charity Global Action Plan. Clean Air Day normally takes place on the third Thursday in June and sees hundreds of events take place across the country focused on improving understanding of air pollution, building awareness and providing information on what everyone can do to tackle air pollution. However, due to Covid-19, this year Clean Air Day is taking place on 8 October 2020 and will focus on virtual events.
Clean Air Day engages all walks of life in a bid to bring everyone together to tackle air pollution, with events focused on communities, businesses, education and health sectors. Local Authorities play a huge role in coordinating action on Clean Air Day, and London’s boroughs will be raising awareness across the capital this Thursday.
Global Action Plan provide information and communications materials on air pollution free – you can access these on the Clean Air Day website.
