This project has been developed by Cool World Consulting. Our team has been working on cleaner air campaigns with schools, local authorities and the Mayor of London, across the country for the last six years.
The aim of our work is to empower those we engage with to make changes to their behaviour and deliver projects that result in cleaner air.
Directors, Lucy Harbor and Tom Knowles, are both parents themselves at schools in London and Oxfordshire. Lucy's children attend a school that previously had very high pollution levels, and with the PTA and Head Teacher she has been delivering clean air projects at their school, as well as at over 50 schools across the UK through her professional work.
There is a huge will out there amongst many parents and teachers to clean up the air at schools. But due to the technical nature of pollution, people often don’t know where to start.
That’s the problem this programme seeks to address. What can we, the school, actually do ourselves to take on this issue?
