Clean Air Day 2020
The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the government recognise that air pollution is the biggest environmental health risk we face, with air pollution causing up to 36,000 deaths in the UK.
During this year's lockdown we experienced cleaner air and saw massive shifts to low pollution behaviours.
We all have a part to play to keep Kent's air clean. As a county, we can make 8 October 2020 the cleanest Clean Air Day yet and feel the difference.
About Clean Air Day
Clean Air Day is the UK's largest air pollution campaign. The day brings together communities, businesses, schools and the health sectors to:
- improve understanding of air pollution and its health risks
- explain how we can all tackle air pollution and help protect the environment.
