Clean Air Day, the UK’s largest campaign on air pollution is happening on Thursday 15 June 2023. The theme is – “Clean up our air to look after your mind this #CleanAirDay”.
The campaign is focusing on the fact that 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.
This year, REHIS will be supporting Clean Air Day by joining in on their Social Media Campaign.
Several events have been organised across the country including Aberdeen City Council has a Clean Air Day event planned with organisations including: the Cleaner Air for Aberdeen team, the ACC LEZ team, the ACC Hydrogen Project, Big Issue bikes, First Bus, Enterprise Car Club, Energy Savings Trust, Getabout, Sustrans, Original FM Radio, and the Hedge men street entertainers.
They are also organising a poster competition for primary school pupils, with the chance to win a bicycle! The posters will also be displayed at the Aberdeen Science Centre from early July until mid-August. They are also hoping to have Health Walks organised for people to participate in.
Amey Ltd is educating their employers on Clean Air Day in Scotland by refreshing and relaunching their Fuel Efficient Driving Briefs and launching a Green Travel Survey to assess what barriers their employees face in making an eco-friendlier commute.
They are also hoping to have a Fleet Review undertaken by the Energy Saving Trust that will provide fleet decarbonisation recommendations.
