Clean Air is important to us in Bradford particularly as 1 in every 5 children has a breathing problem. Parts of our city are not accessible to many of our residents without causing breathing difficulties, or risk of worsening chronic health conditions.
Meanwhile, there are 370 respiratory emergency attendances per week at our district's hospitals.
Air pollution is the single biggest environmental health risk in the UK and young people are particularly vulnerable to the effects of poor air quality. School communities can play a big role in raising awareness of the need for clean air and taking action
to improve air quality in and around their schools.
There are lots resources available for schools to use to promote and get involved with Clean Air Day including material for KS1 and KS2 as well as assembly pack, posters, bunting and worksheets.

If your school has any events planned or will be posting social media let us know so we can share from Bradford Council accounts.
