Breathing life back into our cities

Air pollution is not just a little haze in the distance. Air pollution outdoors and inside our homes claims an estimated 6.5 million lives every year. It impacts our health through long-term exposure and causes near-term climate change, threatening the lives of future generations.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) have launched a joint campaign called Breathe Life to mobilise cities and individuals to protect our health and planet from the effects of air pollution.

Visit www.BreatheLife2030.org to see how the air in your city compares to the WHO guideline for safe air, learn about clean air solutions and commit to breathe life back into your city.
