LET’S MAKE 2021 THE CLEANEST CLEAN AIR DAY YET!
Environmental Protection Scotland is coordinating the event on behalf of the Scottish Government’s Cleaner Air For Scotland (CAFS) strategy, which aims to make Scotland’s air quality the best in Europe. It is the third year of our involvement in the UK’s biggest air quality campaign.
The national lockdown brought upon us some dramatic short-term air quality improvements as the Scottish Government restrictions forced people to make changes to their daily routines leading to an upsurge in cycling and walking as part of their daily routines.
Homeworking became the ‘new norm’ – and remains so – for many workers with videoconferencing and fewer cars on the roads, especially at peak times, as they stay away from their offices.
The Clean Air Day resources also have information about the many grants available to buy an EV, charge-points and general information about their impact on the environment.
There is plenty of other information in the free resources – which take just a few seconds to download – about other air pollutants. These include those from industrial sites, agriculture, and domestic burning so people are armed with the knowledge to contribute to making Scotland’s air cleaner.
Also outlined are the very simple steps we can all take to help our family avoid poor air quality and cut down on the pollution we emit – it is good for us and good for the planet too! The fact-based resources are approved by leading health experts.
Thursday June 17th is a day of practical action and awareness-raising, so we can all breathe cleaner air.
In October 2020, 140 participating organisations from the Highlands to Ayrshire were involved in the success of Clean Air Day.
