Seven primary schools have signed up for free air quality workshops delivered by Ipswich Borough Council as part of this year’s Clean Air Day campaign.
Air Quality officers are going to St Pancras, St Mark’s, St Mary’s (in partnership with East Suffolk Council staff), Whitehouse, Cliff Lane, St Margaret’s and Rushmere Hall to help raise awareness of the importance of improved air quality and the small steps we can take to reduce air pollution.
Children will learn about the sources of air pollution around schools, how air pollution affects them and what they can do to improve local air quality and protect themselves from pollution. Clean Air Day takes place on 20th June and is the UK’s biggest air pollution campaign.
This is an opportunity to find out more about pollution, share information and make the air cleaner and healthier for everyone. We want to work together with schools on a wide range of issues concerning air quality and are interested in the views they put forward.Councillor Alasdair Ross, Community Protection portfolio-holder
