Clean air for Colchester – be part of the change

Colchester City Council have been awarded funding from DEFRA for a two year behaviour change project to tackle levels of pollution in the city. Through the project they will be working in partnership with residents, schools, businesses and community groups to raise awareness of air quality issues and encourage people to take action.

We know for example that small easy changes to driving habits, such as switching the engine off whilst stationary, can cut pollution by up to 30% – think how much cleaner the air will be with 30% less pollution!

They want to make the air we breathe cleaner – but they can’t do it alone. Please fill in our survey and share it far and wide to help us get a better understanding of what is currently known about pollution and the effect it has on our health and well-being. The survey takes no longer than 8 minutes to complete: Clean Air Survey

They have also joined up with a local people to produce this 2 minute film all about the air in Colchester – they would love to know what you think – join the discussion #cleanaircol
