Petition A Clean Air Act for the 21st Century
Air pollution is silently and prematurely killing 40,000 to 50,000 UK citizens every year at an economic cost of nearly £54 billion. Sixty years on from the first Clean Air Act we need the same level of commitment to saving peoples lives today through a Clean Air Act for the 21st Century.
Over the coming months ‘A Breath of Fresh Air’ SERA’s clean air campaign will be building support for an act, encouraging research, shaping policy changes and actions, working with a range of organisations and host discussions. This will help support a bold, robust and ambitious case for a Clean Air Act that is fit for the 21st Century. More than ever, following the referendum and the risk to EU protections we currently have, action must be taken now. Add your voice to make this happen.
