About Clean Air Day
Air pollution is real and harms the health of millions. Unlike other risks to our health, lots of people don’t know what causes air pollution, what effects it has on our bodies or how to reduce our exposure to it.
But there are lots of simple things we can do to improve air quality and look after our own and other people’s health.
That’s what Clean Air Day is all about. It’s a chance to find out more about air pollution, share information with your friends and colleagues, and take action to make the air cleaner and healthier for everyone.
In Colchester, we will be organising a series of events during the day and evening of 21st June 2018 including:
13:45 - Session 1 with St Thomas Moore Primary school - a children's interactive event to explore air pollution and some cool little tricks in nature that can tell us more about the air we're breathing (this is a closed session but please get in touch for an information pack if you would like to do this at your school)
15:15 - Session 2 with Home Schooled children - a children's interactive event to explore air pollution and some cool little tricks in nature that can tell us more about the air we're breathing (this is a closed session but please get in touch for an information pack if you would like to do this at your school)
16:00 Children's decorated Scooters and Bicycles Competition at Firstsite sponsored by the brilliant Micro Scooters - prizes for all! See poster below
17:00 - 19:00 - Stalls including Walk Colchester and screening of AIR: A film about the air we breathe by local filmmaker, Eleanor Church
19:00 -21:00 - Du to lack of entrants, we've had to unfortunately cancel the music competition BUT live Jazz band instead with Charly Richardson/sax, Ian Buzer/trumpet, Gareth George/guitar, Simon Wood/double bass and Elmer van der Hoek/drums instead!
