In London, the legal air quality limits
are broken every year.

London is among the worst cities in Europe for air pollution. It has the highest recorded level of nitrogen dioxide of any capital city in Europe.

The UK and EU set legally binding limits on levels of air pollution based on World Health Organisation guidelines. One or more of these limits has been broken in London every year since they came into effect in 2005. Some areas, such as Brixton Road and Putney High Street, are over three times the legal limits for NO2.

We will be working with people who live, work or study in London to help raise awareness of the importance of healthy air. If you’d like to be involved, or get your local community involved please get in touch. We are interested in what you think – any ideas or suggestions, however big or small!
