Clean Air Day – Make your pledge!
Thursday 17 June
From promising to leave the car at home to getting all the kids to walk to school, see how you can publicise your pledge along with others in Lewes on Thursday 17 June to improve air quality to protect our children’s health.
Thursday 17 June is National Clean Air Day – the fifth annual event marking the UK’s biggest clean air campaign. Following a year of children’s lives being disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Clean Air Day theme is ‘protect our children’s health from air pollution’.
So this year, Lewes’ Clean Air Day organisers are asking everyone to pledge what action they’ll take on 17 June (and hopefully throughout the year!) to help make the air cleaner for our children – and then share that pledge on social media.
You may already have a particular pledge you’d like to make – but here are some ideas:
- I pledge to give my car a day off on 17 June Clean Air Day
- I pledge to make a public statement to act on air pollution on 17 June Clean Air Day
- I pledge to walk or cycle to school / work on 17 June Clean Air Day
- I pledge to switch off my engine on 17 June Clean Air Day
- I pledge to avoid burning household and garden waste on 17 June Clean Air Day
- I pledge to learn more about air pollution on 17 June Clean Air Day
How to make your pledge:
- Take a photograph of yourself holding your pledge statement. Then post it to https://www.facebook.com/CleanAirDayUK or on Twitter or Instagram using any of the hashtags #CleanAirDay; @lewesclimatehub /#cyclelewes /#allianceseaford
