A community of educators empowering students to take climate action

Clean Air Superheroes (KS3)

This KS3 activity explores why clean air is important, the sources of air pollution and the actions we can all take to protect ourselves from the health harms of air pollution. Students will create a clean air action plan for themselves and their school community. They will identify one clean air action they think is important for their school and design an example communication tool for a target audience who could help make this change happen. This resource has been created in partnership with the Met Office.
