Lambeth Clean Air Week 2018
Following on from the success of last year, we are celebrating Lambeth Clean Air Week 2018 week commencing 18 June 2018. There will be a number of events across the borough to raise awareness about air pollution and to discuss how we can work together to improve air quality.
Following on the success of Lambeth Clean Air Week 2017 we are organising more events this year to raise awareness and engage with our citizens.
What events will be taking place?
Wednesday 13 June
In the week leading up to Lambeth Clean air Week and as part of the Waterloo Festival, Professor Kumar from Surrey University will be bringing his interactive Living-Lab to St John’s Church, Waterloo, to raise awareness about air quality and the impact of green infrastructure on reducing air pollution and improving health and well- being. The workshop will run over the course of the afternoon and early evening, more details can be found here.
Monday 18 June
Following on from the success last year, we will be visiting 12 schools on Monday 18 June to deliver a targeted education and awareness campaign to help children and parents understand how they can improve air quality and limit personal exposure to air pollution.
Wednesday 20 June
We will hold our annual resident engagement event on Wednesday evening where council officers will be available to answer questions regarding air pollution in Lambeth and what we are doing to tackle this problem. This page will be updated to provide details of the location for this event nearer the time.
Thursday 21 June
Thursday 21 June is National Clean Air Day and we are organising a large anti-idling event to encourage drivers to switch off their engines when stationary, as part of our Idling Action project funded through the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund in partnership with 15 other London boroughs. If you would like to volunteer to take part in our anti-idling project please visit www.idlingaction.london

The Sustainability team will be taking part in the Windrush Square celebration to commemorate the people of the Windrush, their children and grandchildren that have played a vital role in shaping our unique Brixton culture. We will be comparing air quality in 1948 with air quality today with our hand held air quality monitors.
