Tooting supports Clean Air Day

Tooting supports Clean Air Day

| by Tooting Newsie | Posted in News, Health & Fitness, Education, Events

Wandsworth Council is organising special events to mark Clean Air Day on June 21 and is encouraging local people to do their bit.

National Clean Air Day is about raising awareness of pollution issues, supporting people to reduce the amount of pollution they create, giving them tips on how to avoid pollution and helping them work together to improve air quality.

Wandsworth Council has a package of measures already in place to reduce air pollution and will be actively promoting Clean Air Day with a series of events across the borough.

In Tooting on Saturday June 23, the council’s holding an event from 10am-1pm to encourage people to leave their cars at home. Council officers will be in the town centre outside TKMaxx offering advice, handing out information leaflets, giving out goodies and giving residents a chance to ride the smoothie bike.

There will also be a string of events in borough schools this month teaching young people about reducing air pollution. Theatre groups will be running workshops and there will be special games to teach children how to improve air quality. Parents will be asked not to leave engines idling while they wait to pick up their children - Wandsworth is one of 15 local authorities taking part in the Vehicle Idling Action Campaign.

Wandsworth is a member of the London Low Emission Construction Partnership (LLECP), working with other London boroughs and Kings College London to reduce the air quality impacts from building work.
