London Schools Pollution Helpdesk
The helpdesk is a free-to-use service, to help London schools to take action on air pollution. It is funded by the Mayor of London and Impact on Urban Health. The helpdesk can support schools through:
- advice on improving air quality in and around the school.
- help to develop a Clean Air Action Plan.
- educational sessions to help young people learn more about air pollution.
- direction towards funding streams and help to complete applications.
Schools, educators and community members can get in touch with any queries via phone: 020 4534 3910 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is an online self-audit tool to help schools prioritise which actions they should take to tackle air pollution. It’s relatively quick to complete (takes around 30 minutes), asks a few questions about the school circumstances, and then provides prioritised actions for the school to choose with supporting resources and case studies.
Global Action Plan has lots of learning resources around air pollution on the Transform Our World site (as well as on wider environmental issues).
