Polluting Playgrounds isn't Progress

Hackney Council is proposing to close the only east-west cut through between Stoke Newington Church Street and Crossway, displacing 5,760 vehicles to neighbouring streets. Thousands of cars will be displaced past primary schools and nurseries. 7 schools and 7 nurseries will have more hazards and more pollution if the road closures go ahead. 3 primary schools will be illegally polluted, according to Hackney  Council's air quality modelling.

Woodburning Stove Campaign

Did you know that a woodburning stove can be 18 times more polluting per hour than driving a diesel car?

Or that wood burning is believed to be the single biggest contributor to particular pollution – making up a third of particle pollution in London each year?

CleanAir4Schools is urging residents to drastically lower their use of woodburning stoves and open fires to just at Christmas, when pollution levels tend to be lower, or ideally to stop using them altogether.

ULEZ (Ultra-Low Emission Zone)

We're campaigning for ULEZ to be introduced and expanded to cover the whole of London not just up to the north and south circular

Car Free Days

We worked with the Air Team to campaign for a fresh air future. CleanAir4Schools set up a rainbow racetrack for zero-emission ride on cars to mark Car Free Day.

Campaign against bus stops outside school playgrounds

CleanAir4Schools has been lobbying TFL and Hackney Council to remove the bus stop from outside William Patten Primary School for three years.


We've spoken directly with London Mayor Sadiq Khan about the issue and hold regular meetings with air quality and transport officers at the GLA and TFL. 

No school should have buses idling outside their playgrounds.
