Clean Air Day 2021
Clean Air Day on 17 June has the theme ‘protect our children’s health from air pollution’. It is a moment when thousands of people up and down the country come together to collaboratively voice support, hold events, make pledges and take action on toxic air.
Children are more vulnerable to the effects of air pollution. It not only impacts their health but also their ability to learn. The damage can start in the womb and carry on through to old age. As we return to our lives, we must take this opportunity to create a clean air environment where they can learn and play safely.
