Clean Air Day – 15 June 2023
We’re thrilled to be a Clean Air Day Supporter
This year’s Clean Air Day theme has been announced(!) The 2023 theme is – “Clean up our air to look after your mind this #CleanAirDay”.
Cleaning up our air is good for us in many ways: it not only benefits our physical health and the environment but can also protect our mental and brain health. The physical health impacts of air pollution – such as asthma, heart disease and cancers – have been recognised for decades. More recently, researchers are beginning to understand how air pollution can affect the brain and the mind.
Campaigners want to use this year’s Clean Air Day to support the public to:
- Learn: find out more about how air pollution impacts our mental, physical and planet’s health.
- Act: walk, wheel or use public transport to reduce your exposure and contribution to air pollution. If you drive, try leaving the car behind on Clean Air Day and one day every week.
- Ask: get in touch with your local councillor to ask them to support clean air measures that make it easier for you to breathe clean air.
