Let’s face it, the state of the air in the UK’s major cities is appalling. With “illegal levels of air pollution in many UK cities” , there are numerous plans about how governing bodies will tackle the issue to give us cleaner air to breathe… but if anything is going to work we all need to do our part too! We’re starting a new initiative called Map UK to do just that.
We’re calling on all the cycling groups, running squads, communities, schools, families and people who care about the air they breathe – to help build the first up-to-date air pollution data map of the UK.
To do this, we are looking to equip the thousands of people who are most passionate about air quality with CleanSpace Tags so that you can start seeing and understanding the air you breathe, wherever you are. Working together, we will build a sophisticated picture of the UK’s air pollution. From there we hope to give everyone – individuals, schools, businesses and government – the information they need to take real action!
Whether it’s mapping the area around and in your home, work or child’s school; equipping the members of your cycling club with Tags for their regular rides and daily commutes; walking your local areas and green spaces; or working with friends to map air pollution across famous city attractions, there’s a role for all of us to play.
To get involved, fill out the short form below and tell us how you would use your CleanSpace Tag to Map UK.
