Wednesday 20th June, 1.30-4pm: Idling Engine Action Day

Volunteer with us, as we explore the streets of the City and ask idling drivers to switch off their engines when parked for more than a minute. These action days focus on driving behavioural change by raising awareness of the impact of idling engines on local air quality.

Please visit to sign up, or email if you have any queries.

Thursday 21st June: National Clean Air Day

Join us here in the City to celebrate National Clean Air Day and raise awareness about air quality:

11-2pm: Clean Air Day stand in Guildhall Yard

Tucked in amongst the Lunch Market stalls, we'll be there with information about National Clean Air Day and Air Quality. Come grab a bite to eat and find out more about what you can be doing to reduce your personal exposure to air quality and have an opportunity to talk with City of London air quality officers.

1-2pm: FREE Electric bike tour of the City

Want to try out an electric bike? Want to discover history and anecdotes of the City? Join us on this free e-bike tour run by Green Commute Initiative. Organised by the Cheapside Business Alliance, you can sign up here.

3-4pm: Air Quality information stall at Sir John Cass Foundation primary school reception

Do you children attend Sir John Cass primary? During the pick-up hour there we will be outside the school reception and ready to answer queries you might have about air quality, and information about initiatives the City and Sir John Cass Foundation have undertaken to improve air quality at the school. Come and say hello.

4.30-6pm: Clean Air Day celebration

In the rooftop garden at Sir John Cass primary school, with a backdrop of the City, a group, including school staff and governors, Sir John Cass Foundation personnel and City officers, will be gathering to hear about air quality initiatives in the school and how to further these achievements, promoting the aims of Clean Air Day:

REDUCE the amount of pollution you create

TALK and join forces to beat pollution together

AVOID harmful air pollution

Run your own Clean Air Day celebration

If you would like to run your own event or raising awareness programme, National Clean Air Day's website has a mine of resources you can use.
