To support CFD 2021, CRP’s Healthy Streets Everyday Programme held a School Mural competition to raise awareness and engage school children on the topics of air pollution and active travel.
As part of the competition, pupils were asked to design a mural based on the question “What do you think a future with clean air looks like?”. This included:
- Walking, cycling and scooting to school
- Streets without cars
- Tree planting and nature
- Using renewable energy sources
- Links between air pollution and health
Schools had the chance to win £5k of funding to create a mural, helping to incorporate more art into our streets and support local artists that have been particularly impacted by the pandemic.
We had over 150 mural submissions from 12 schools as part of the competition.
