Clean Air Public Insight Tracker (CAPIT)
Air pollution is the single greatest environmental risk to our health. The premature deaths, ailments and lost working days caused by air pollution are well documented. Like other major health risks it can lead to concern, anger, frustration and fear when the issue comes to light. These emotional responses cannot be controlled, but should be addressed. People should not need to live with concern and fear when their actions can mitigate the risk. Nor should people have frustration and anger welling up inside them when there are steps they can take to improve the situation.
The June 2019 CAPIT survey gave us some key insights including:
- The public want an air pollution campaign that will educate them on air pollution and give them the tools to do something about the issue.
- Air pollution is an urgent issue with support across all political divides and across all areas of the country
- Awareness about air pollution is increasing
