Clean Air for Schools

20. Banner improve

This is our joint initiative with Sustrans and Public Health Dorset to improve air quality outside our schools.

We want to help children and their families understand the impact of air pollution, what causes it and how it can be reduced. One of our key aims is to raise awareness about the impact of leaving a car engine running when parked, especially outside schools, and to improve the quality of air in and around schools. 

Clean Air Toolkit

We’ve produced a Clean Air Toolkit for schools, to help teachers deliver engaging ‘clean-air’ lessons, assemblies and activities. It includes videos, presentations, access to hand-held monitors and microscopes, worksheets and ideas.

Families can get involved too – find out more here.
