Air Pollution graphic encouraging walking short distances to save £16M in fuel

Clean Air Day

Clean Air Day, the UK’s largest campaign on air pollution is on Thursday 16 June 2022.

Air pollution is the biggest environmental threat to our health, no matter who you are or where you live. It can harm every organ in your body and can shorten our lives, contribute towards chronic illness and put us more at risk from COVID-19.

This Clean Air Day there are simple steps we can all take to cut down on the pollution we cause and use our voices to fight for a cleaner air future. This year we’re focusing on walking, which has positive benefits for your health and the planet. We are encouraging people to do three key things around this theme:

  • Talk to someone about the harms of air pollution.
  • Walk those short distance trips and leave the car at home, where you can.
  • Ask local and national decision makers for what would make it easier for you to walk more and have clean air in your community

To learn more about air pollution – visit and share with everything you need to know about air pollution in one place.

To share your experiences – let others know what you are doing to tackle air pollution and help inspire others at @CleanAirDayUK and use #cleanairday in any social media posts.
