Trees For Cities

24.07.2019

The Mayor of London recently carried out an Air Quality Audit of 50 primary schools in London to find out which are the most polluted and how to reduce emissions and exposure.

Span Trust acknowledge how vital it is to keep our city air clean and the detrimental impact it will have on our young people if we don’t. Trees for Cities’ Planting Healthy Air in Schools Programme will improve air quality through planting trees, vegetation and/or installing green screens in 12 of the most polluted schools in London across 3 years.

This innovative project, in partnership with Mapping for Change and Lancaster University, will involve the whole school through monitoring projects and is likely to improve pupil’s physical and mental health well-being.
