Clean Air Day is the largest air pollution campaign in the UK – taking place on Thursday 15 June 2023.
Clean Air Day helps to drive a positive shift in public knowledge and action. The day is a chance to find out more about air pollution, share information, and make our air cleaner and healthier for everyone.
The theme for the campaign this year is: Clean up our mind 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.
You can get involved by downloading our free Scottish resources here. We have everything you need to mark the day, such as a social media pack, event pack with posters, banners, and bunting, lesson plans activities for schools, content to help health professionals have conversations with patients about air pollution, and updated resources in Gaelic!
