Air quality toolkit for schools launched

Cleaner Air, Cleaner World: Schools Toolkit 2020

Poor air quality is damaging to our health, and particularly affects children. We can all take positive action to improve air quality. Many of these actions also protect against climate change and improve our overall health and wellbeing.

The Cleaner Air, Cleaner World: Schools Toolkit 2020 is a free resource for primary schools in Swindon. It contains more information on why air quality is important, alongside lesson plans, experiments, assembly plans and a raft of ideas for how your school can be part of the work to improve air quality in Swindon. Work done using the Toolkit can contribute to our Healthy Schools awards scheme, and the Modeshift Stars national scheme.

Clean Air Day (18th June 2020) is a chance to celebrate the positive work your school is doing, and focus on the environment. We include links and resources for activities you could plan for your school around Clean Air Day.

As part of the Cleaner Air, Cleaner World Toolkit launch, we are offering the first ten schools to apply, funding for producing a banner and two outdoor posters for outside school. This is intended to be part of a school competition for children to design their own banners and posters, promoting active travel to school or reducing idling.
