school NO2


A recent Greenpeace investigation revealed more than 2,000 schools, nurseries, further education centres and after-school clubs are within 150m of roads emitting illegal levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2).  In London, even after extension of the proposed ultra low emission zone (ULEZ) in 2019 there will still be 950 schools exposed to illegal levels of NO2.  Similar situations are replicated throughout the UK, making this an urgent public health crisis.

As doctors and health professionals we have a responsibility to promote health, and to advocate on behalf of children most at risk from air pollution.
