Campaign for cleaner air

We need to take action so everyone can breathe clean air with healthy lungs

Air pollution children

Many towns and cities across the UK have unsafe and illegal levels of air pollution – often from traffic fumes. Other sources like industry, farming and wood burning can also make the air dangerous for our health.

Tens of thousands of deaths every year are linked to air pollution. It is linked to a wide range of health problems, including lung disease, and disproportionately impacts certain groups, especially children and people with existing lung conditions.

It’s clear that our current levels of air pollution constitute a public health crisis.

We’re campaigning to change this. We need:

  • A network of Clean Air Zones (CAZs) that lower pollution in towns and cities as quickly as possible
  • New laws that set legal limits at least in line with the World Health Organisation’s guidelines
  • An ambitious updated Clean Air Strategy that puts those more vulnerable to the effects of air pollution at its core
  • More monitoring outside schools, hospitals and GP surgeries in polluted areas.

We're working with decision-makers across the UK to make sure air pollution is prioritised and these policies are put in place.

We run the Clean Air Parents’ Network to bring parents and carers together to call for cleaner air for children across the country. Why not join the Clean Air Parent’s Network and help us fight air pollution.
