Freedom to breathe webinars for schools
(20/09/21)

Freedom to breathe is an international campaign which aims to gather the support of 20,000 children from four target cities (starting with Beijing, Delhi, London, Los Angeles) - in support of a call to the UN to acknowledge Children’s Right to Clean Air. Students will also have the opportunity to join a virtual event in November, to hear the response from the UN and find out more about what other children across the world have been doing! 

 

Global Action Plan are running in-person and online workshops for London schools in September and October – to gather children’s voices and calls, ready to present to the UN in November.

 

Students will learn about:

  • The state of air quality 
  • The benefits of cleaner air to children’s health and development  
  • The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, noting the absence of the explicit “right to clean air” (article 24).
