Clean School Air
Many schools in the UK are places where levels of air pollution are dangerously high, especially if they are close to busy roads.
Clean School Air is a not-for-profit campaigning and resources group here to help parents and schools who want to improve the quality of the air for their children.
Our focus is on schools – but we support the mission to improve quality for everyone.
