Islington Clean Air Parents was founded in 2019 by four parents, Helena, Rachael, Miranda and Lucy, who have children at schools in the borough and are highly concerned about the pollution levels they are exposed to.
As individuals they were talking to their children’s schools about reducing air pollution, but finding that the Heads weren’t always receptive to taking action. By forming a group they have found support and ideas about how to create change.
We are now a fast growing network of parents and carers in Islington. Members tell us they want to see more action being taken and faster whilst our children are still young.
Our Mission is to create a network of parents & carers representing every school in Islington, working together with relevant authorities to significantly reduce air pollution below EU legal limits and creating a healthy clean air environment for all our children across the borough.
