Organised by sustainability charity, Global Action Plan, CFP is an ongoing supporter of Clean Air Day’s annual campaign to highlight the harmful effects of air pollution on our healthand environment. According to National Geographic, “almost2.5 million people die worldwide each year from the effects of outdoor or indoor air pollution” and the detrimental long- and short-term health hazards associated with pollutants are well-documented, from respiratory infections and heart disease to lung cancer and Alzheimer’s. Not only a public health crisis, air pollutants continue to rage their war on climate change and our natural world, with uncheckered and unacceptable levels of greenhouse gases, industrial chemicals and vehicle trafficstill the main culprits.
Safeguarding children from air pollution
Now in its fifth year, the Clean Air Day 2021’s theme is to“protect our children’s health from air pollution” as well asraise awareness on poor air quality and ways to combat it.
According to the British Lung Foundation (BLF), poor indoor air quality has been linked to lung diseases like asthma, COPD, cancer and more recently, the spread of Covid. The implications for children’s health can be much worse. In the case of Ella Kissi-Debrah, a coroner made legal history ruling that air pollution and failure to reduce pollution levels to legal limits was a factor in the death of the nine-year-old with severe asthma.
Therefore, this year’s Clean Air Day theme – to improve the quality of indoor air our children breathe – is more important than ever before. As the BLF notes: “Children are particularly vulnerable to poor indoor air quality as their lungs are still developing [and] their airways are smaller… Pollution can also interact with allergens to cause asthma in children.”
