We believe everyone has the right to breathe clean air

If you live in London or any major city in the UK, you’ll be very aware of the impact of air pollution, but did you know it’s been deemed the biggest threat to health by the government?

This ‘silent killer’ is responsible for around 40,000 attributable deaths each year and continues to pose a very real threat to future generations.

With a need to accelerate change, Nature2030 assembled a formidable force of leading health authorities, scientists, NGOs and senior politicians to sign an open letter requesting the government to adopt and introduce a new Clean Air Bill that would enshrine the human right to breathe clean air in the Queen’s Speech.

“[It will] ensure that the fight against air pollution takes a prominent position on the political agenda and moves a step closer to empowering people to hold public bodies to account if their human right to breathe clean and safe air is threatened,” John Higginson

We’re very proud to be working with Clean Air in London, the Green Party’s Baroness Jenny Jones and Labour Co-operative MP Geraint Davies in the fight against air pollution and would like to thank everyone who united in support of this important cause.

We deeply believe that everyone has the right to breathe clean air and hope the government seize this opportunity to be a world leader on tackling #airpollution
