What does clean air mean to you?

AWShare logo

The air we breathe is important, and yet many of us take clean air for granted. Is clean air something that you care about? In February 2017 the National Centre for Atmospheric Science took their clean air roadshow - the air we share - to three cities in Yorkshire to find out what people think about local air quality.

We spoke to hundreds of people in the freezing cold, and encouraged people to take part in our online survey and share their attitudes towards air quality.

You can now see the results of our survey about local air quality.

Our events in York, Leeds and Bradford explored why air pollution is a growing crisis in cities around the world, and how you can make the air we share cleaner for everyone.

We were interested to find out what you think makes the air polluted in your city, and what must be done to make the air cleaner. Our research survey was set up to capture local thoughts and feelings about air pollution, and the results are being fed back to local city councils and national bodies responsible for taking action to improve the air we breathe. 

Our handy infographic will give you a brief run-down of what the Air We Share team got up to in February 2017.
