Clean Air Everywhere

Tell the Prime Minister it’s time for clean air everywhere

2nd July 2017

Air pollution affects us all – but not nearly enough is being done about it.

Dirty air is linked to serious health conditions including asthma, heart disease and lung cancer. And it hits children – whose lungs are still developing – the hardest.

It's time for #cleanaireverywhere

The response from politicians hasn’t been good enough. The latest government plan to tackle illegal pollution is breathtakingly short on detail and doesn’t go far enough to address the public health crisis of our dirty air.

Right now we have a chance make a difference. The plan will be finalised in mid-July. If enough of us demand an end to toxic air pollution now the final plan could be much more effective.

The best way to curb illegal pollution is to discourage dirty vehicles in polluted areas, via so-called ‘Clean Air Zones’, and to help diesel drivers switch to cleaner alternatives.

Let’s tell the Prime Minister we want these measures and more, to ensure clean air everywhere.

To: The Prime Minister

“The plans to clean up our air and protect the nation’s health don’t go nearly far enough.

Will you commit to properly funded Clear Air Zones to tackle illegal air pollution, a comprehensive scrappage scheme to help diesel drivers switch to cleaner alternatives, and ultimately to phasing out dirty diesel altogether?”
