The National Clean Air Day 2018 campaign has been a huge success.

Here at the University of Leeds, we offered free breakfast for sustainable commuters to mark Clean Air Day, as well as to highlight sustainability issues including environmental and health concerns linked to poor air quality.  We also collected 100 personal pledges to reduce air pollution on the day that you can view on our Facebook page.

We shared video blogs with key speakers throughout our campaign where each key speaker encouraging others to join in with National Clean Air Day.

We also shared our interview with Nick Tabler, an exchange student from Alberta Canada, who is helping to improve air quality around Leeds through Leeds Living Labs software development, centre calibration and designing air quality monitoring solutions.  We also have a short piece on why you should be leaving your car at home, and the results of a travel survey completed by staff and students across the University. In case you missed them, check out the links below:
