Become a 'change maker' - help reduce air pollution

Thu, 25/02/2016

Become a 'change maker' and help reduce local air pollution from idling vehicles.

Cross River Partnership is currently looking for volunteer change makers to help deliver clean air action days on the 9 and 16 of March 2016.

The action days are part of the Clean Air Action Fortnight which will focus on reducing idling across London – encouraging drivers to turn their engines off when stationary to reduce dirty air from exhausts. Spread the word using #noidling.

On one or both action days volunteers will be paired with another change maker and spend 2 or 3 hours talking to drivers in Central London – either thanking them for having their engines off or asking idlers to switch off. Volunteers will also provide drivers with information flyers and incentives.

As a change maker, you’ll be helping to tackle a major public health issue as well as making your local environment a cleaner, healthier place to breathe, live and work.

Free training sessions and materials will be provided on 2 and 3 March 2016 and you must take part in one of these sessions in order to volunteer on the action days. Register your interest now:
