Clean Air Day 2018

Saturday 23 June, Cliffe High Street, 10.30am-4pm, FREE

Clean Air Day aims to raise awareness of air pollution and promote the things you can do to help improve air quality.

Clean air is fundamental to good health, with the cost of air pollution-related illness estimated at £20bn per annum. Particulate pollution has been linked with Alzheimer’s, and living near a major road is a risk factor in early death. Poor quality air is the cause of 40,000 deaths a year in the UK.


The UK’s national Clean Air Day 2018 is on the 21 June, but Lewes will be celebrating it on Saturday 23 June 2018.

Cliffe High Street will be closed (subject to LDC approval) and host street stalls and events throughout the day promoting cycling, walking and public transport, renewable energy, electric vehicles and looking at the role that nature can play in improving our air quality.

Cliffe High Street to be closed (subject to LDC approval) for Clean Air Day on 23 June

Clean Air Day is promoted in Lewes by Transition Town Lewes and the South Coast Alliance for Transport and the Environment (SCATE). SCATE is a coalition of groups that oppose road building at the expense of investment in integrated rail and public transport along the south coast.
