Support the UK’s Clean Air Day, 16 June 2022

By on

Global Action Plan co-ordinates the UK’s largest campaign on air pollution, Clean Air Day.

This year the campaign is taking place on 16 June 2022 with the theme ‘Air pollution dirties every organ in your body. Take steps to improve your health and planet this Clean Air Day’. This is because it is still widely unknown that air pollution impacts everyone, not just the most vulnerable. It can move into your blood through your lungs and affect every organ of the body.

Therefore, this year we’re asking businesses to specifically:

  • Talk to your customers, staff and stakeholders about harms of air pollution
  • Walk – encourage and provide incentives for your customers and staff to walk those short distance trips and leave the car at home, where they can
  • Ask local and national decision-makers for what would make it easier for your customers, staff and/or stakeholders to walk more and have clean air in your community.

Free Clean Air Day resources for businesses, including a business mapping sheet, template letter to send to the company’s CEO and email footers, are available here
