The theme of this year’s World Environmental Health Day is ‘Indoor and Outdoor Air Quality.

REHIS will participate in the International Federation of Environmental Health’s World Environmental Health Day 2017 activities by arranging and co-funding, with the City of Edinburgh Council, the installation of an Electrical Vehicle Charging Point (ECP) outside a public library which is adjacent to an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) in Edinburgh. The AQMA includes a street often referred to as one of the worst polluted streets in Scotland. The ECP will be REHIS and IFEH badged and the legacy created will demonstrate a commitment to improving external air quality. Any surplus from the installation of the ECP will be used to co-fund a local air quality project with staff and students at two local primary schools.
