Air quality is a concerning public issue in many areas of the UK. In May 2016 the World Health Organization (WHO) put Oxford in a list of 10 UK towns and cities including London and Glasgow that are failing to meet air quality standards. There has been work to improve the situation but pollution levels are still too high in many parts of Oxford and in places across Oxfordshire. Public Health England report that 5.3% of deaths in the county are attributable to particulate air pollution and many people suffer long-term ill-health that is made worse by pollution.

Oxford Friends of the Earth believes that it is time for some real action; we are calling for all our local councils to develop a strong action programme that will deliver the changes we need to ensure that we have air that meets WHO standards by 2020.

You can help by raising awareness of the situation and signing and sharing our petition to Oxfordshire County Council.

Thanks for your support. It’s time for clean air everywhere!
