Schools Action for Clean Air
Children are particularly at risk from air pollution, as their immune systems, lungs and brains are still developing. Air pollution can affect children’s physical health, their ability to learn, and even lead to death. Yet millions of children are still exposed to dangerously high levels of air pollution, as almost all UK schools are in areas above WHO air pollution limits.
We need to safeguard children from air pollution now, to help them achieve their best life chances, and to ensure this generation, and the environment they live in, is healthy.
