Students: Looking to increase air pollution awareness at your school, or spark sustainability efforts?
Parents: Want your children to know more about air pollution, how they can protect themselves from exposure to poor air quality, and how they can reduce it?
Teachers: Need a hands-on activity and a ton of air quality content?
Youth are more affected by air pollution than adults, due to their developing lungs, larger lungs-to-body weight ratio, and higher levels of activity. Simply knowing when air quality is forecast to be poor can help protect them.
In this program, teachers are given colored flags, a banner, guidance throughout the program, and an activity handbook including sample lesson plans and ideas to increase engagement.
