On 15 June 2017 we ran the UK's first ever National Clean Air Day inspiring people around the country to take action on air pollution.

National Clean Air Day was delivered in partnership with Birmingham City Council, Derby City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester, Leeds City Council, Nottingham City Council and Southampton City Council, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and co-ordinators Global Action Plan, with the aim of engaging the public with the health impacts of air pollution and what they can do to protect their health.  

The day was a huge success with over 200 events, 550 press, radio and TV features and over 28,000 tweets about air pollution on the day. #NationalCleanAirDay trended at number 1 on UK Twitter for 5 hours – out-trending BBC Music Day and British Beer Day. 

In our Celebration Report we highlight some of the key successes of the day. Thanks to everyone who took part and helped make it such a success.
