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 March 2019 CAPIT survey gave us some key insight:
- The majority of people are supportive of plans to ban vehicle idling outside schools.
- There is a high level of support for more public information campaigns on air pollution.
Lack of a clear working from home policy from businesses is preventing people from working from home more often.
