Air quality education for Leicester schools
Poor air quality affects people’s health and damages the environment. In Leicester there are two main pollutants of concern: nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter. The main source of these pollutants is road traffic, in particular diesel engines.
Leicester has an air quality action plan, a strategic approach to achieving better air quality. This action plan sets out how we will improve air quality and meet the EU standards for nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter.
Air quality education
A free, tailored education experience is available for schools in Leicester to explore air quality. Our resources include educational assemblies, lessons, resources and practical activities to raise awareness of air quality. We aim to engage the whole school community, and can provide one-off activities or projects that span the course of the school year.
