We teamed up with Fife Council on Clean Air Day to educate future generations

Duncan Mounsor Managing Director

Clean Air Day (CAD) is the UK’s largest air pollution campaign, bringing together communities, businesses, schools, and the health sector.

Back in September 2021, ET agreed the hire of the Smogmobile to Fife Council to assist with their campaign to highlight the dangers of air pollution and to try and increase active travel to and from Schools to run for the three days up to CAD 2022 (June 16th).

The Council’s objective was to raise awareness of air pollution levels peaking at drop-off and collection, and exposing children to harmful toxins and to encourage walking, cycling or scooting to school as a healthier alternative.

Over the three days, our Managing Director, Duncan Mounsor, monitored air pollution at three primary schools around Dunfermline using our custom-made mobile air quality monitoring laboratory – the Smogmobile.

I actually get a huge amount of job satisfaction visiting schools to talk about the dangers of poor air quality. It’s a global problem. We must educate ourselves and our children to help ensure we continue to decrease pollution levels for future generations.

The project was key in raising awareness among local children. We hope we have inspired some changes, and that the children continue to build upon this knowledge.

The pupils at Carnegie Primary have been buzzing about Clean Air and monitoring air pollution all week! I’ve had some lovely comments from a couple of parents saying that their children – who were involved in some of the many groups who came to listen to Duncan – found it really fascinating. Once again, thanks for the opportunity to be involved: our students have really benefited. The Smogmobile really lends itself to this kind of research and education project.

The Smogmobile’s next outing is to Westminster where it will be monitoring at two Westminster locations to mark London Climate Action week.
