urban cyclingYes, it's going to cost a lot, but Manchester council are about to give cycling in their city a huge boost. And this will surely have a significant effect on improving their air quality. A big lesson to be learnt here by BCC.

children air pollutionChildren living in urban areas of Bristol will have inhaled the equivalent of around 1000 cigarettes since Marvin Rees became Bristol’s Mayor.

That must surely be the most telling notion we came away with at the end of the first public meeting held by Clean Air Bishopston (CAB) on 21st June, Clean Air Day.

cleanairdayEveryone is invited to make a clean air pledge and come to a "community call-out", on 21st June, 6-7pm, at Boston Tea Party, Gloucester Road, followed by a clean air walk.

cyclistsMore and more Bristol people are taking to their bikes to move around the city. Surprisingly perhaps, cyclists are less exposed to air pollution than car drivers because the latter group is continuously breathing air pulled directly into the car's air conditioning from the car in front.

whatnextOnce the big day is over, what next? What else can citizens do individually to improve air quality? How can we best persuade "them" (our institutions and politicians) to act at the same time?

walkingWe're on record as advocating walking as an alternative to causing pollution by driving. So we're planning to "walk the talk" on Clean Air Day Bishopston following our community call-out.

BTPYes! Come to our Community Call-Out: 6-7pm Thursday 21st June at Boston Tea Party, 293 Gloucester Road, Bishopston, Bristol BS7 8PE (corner of Nevil Road)

At this short, informal event, you'll join others to find out more, celebrate and share pledges further, and hear shout-outs from our guest VIPs.

cleanairdayWe think that everyone can help make small steps towards cleaning up our air.

The idea of holding a Clean Air Day Bishopston, on Thursday 21st June 2018, is to demonstrate this, and doing this on the longest day of the year seems appropriate. 

Pledge9BlankEvery small step towards cleaner air by any individual resident can help.

Will you make a pledge in advance of the day, no matter how small it may seem? Are you happy to share news of your pledge with others?
