Smog Off! Campaign

Children are particularly at risk of lung disease caused by pollution so I was pleased to join 30 primary school children who were singing their anti-pollution song at Westminster, supporting the British Lung Foundation’s demand for monitoring of air quality around schools.

The young singers who attend Gayhurst Community Primary School in Hackney, are members of the ‘I Like Clean Air’ campaign. It was formed by parents in September 2014, concerned about the impact of poor air quality on their children's growing lungs. 

The BLF is working in partnership with the choir, highlighting to politicians that harmful pollution exists across many parts of the UK. 

3,000 schools across the UK are located in areas with illegally high levels of air pollution, according to a report by DEFRA, published last year. Very few schools have air pollution monitors around them.
