Clean Air Cops (national)

The Clean Air Cops training equips teachers the knowledge and the confidence to teach their children why clean air is important, the dangers of polluted air to our health, and to our environment and food supply and to recognise what polluters are, what we can do to help reduce air pollution in school, by making greener travel choices, and what we practise in the home and at play.

The homework books are toolkits to take messages to parents and engage them with this serious subject and to persuade them to start walking more and using their cars less and so support the learning of their children.
