This Clean Air Day (Thursday 17 June) the focus is on protecting our children’s health. Air pollution causes up to 36,000 deaths in the UK and young people bear the brunt of poor air quality because of their growing bodies and the environments they spend time in. We’re joining others to passionately raise awareness and support things that will help tackle this issue.
