Local young people are invited to take a lead role designing a new air quality campaign. During the COVID lockdown, millions of people changed their routines to include things like walking, cycling and working from home. As a result, air pollution decreased. Cleaner air has a positive impact on our health.
To harness these positive changes young people are being called upon to help design and implement a new air quality campaign. Those involved will receive training on how to campaign effectively and learn about air quality from local Environmental Protection Officers.
This project offers young people the opportunity to develop skills in campaigning, further their knowledge in air quality and the environment, gain experience in project management, team-working and community-based change.
Young people have the ideas, creativity and vision needed to create a relevant and inspiring campaign. Children are also more vulnerable to the affects of pollution which is another key reason they are the foundation for the campaign. If you are aged 16 to 18 you are invited to apply.
Spaces are limited so please apply by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by 25 October.
