We want to say a big thanks to everyone who participated in Clean Air Day.
From Stornoway to Plockton and Moray to Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow to Ayrshire, the national event on Thursday, June 20th raised awareness of how we can all help improve air quality through active travel, public transport, not idling our engines and by considering the purchase of an electric vehicle.
There were 21 local authorities involved, dozens of schools, several health boards and community active travel hubs as well as many private sector organisations.
Cabinet Secretary for the Environment Roseanna Cunningham attended Glasgow City Council’s major free public event in George Square and Aberdeen City Council also held a free event outside the St Nicholas Shopping Centre. Dundee City Council also attracted interest in active travel at its display at the Penguin Statues.
The event was organised by Environmental Protection Scotland in Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Government’s Cleaner Air For Scotland (CAFS) strategy.
Here is a selection of images from the day.
