Join us for the WCRAQ: Education Working Party on 14 March 2023

This quarter’s theme is Eliminating Air Pollution in Schools.

Time: 13:00 – 15:30 on Teams

The constant threat of air pollution is compromising children’s health. There are actions and solutions available today to help mitigate the effect of harmful emissions. The main barrier is current legislation and the need for more government and local authorities funding.
The working party aims to educate on Interventions for improving indoor and outdoor air quality in and around schools.
