Take action on toxic air 

Take a stand and sign our petition asking for change

The pandemic has shone a light on the nation’s lungs.

Now we’re fighting against another invisible threat – toxic air.  

It’s damaging millions of people’s lungs and far too little is being done to protect them. 

Air pollution is a health emergency. There is no safe amount to breathe in, but people up and down the UK are being forced to live in heavily polluted areas. Politicians have known about this deadly threat for decades, but are yet to take the action needed.

Sign today and tell the UK’s leaders to urgently set out life-saving clean air plans. 


"I started campaigning on air pollution locally because I was so worried about what my children were breathing in on the school run.

But we shouldn’t have to do this alone. We need politicians to lead the way, set out the money and make sure schools are supported to make the best changes for our children."
