Air Quality Ambassadors Application: Deadline Extended!6th October 2020 / Posted by Joshua West
CRP’s first-ever Ambassador Programme opened its virtual doors to applicants a month ago and has seen some incredible applications thus far! The AQ Ambassador Programme is the solution for the City of London Corporation Clean Air Village. Aimed at engaging and empowering community members to be advocates for improved air quality, this programme is more important than ever in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
While London is piecing itself back together from the effects of the pandemic, it’s important that we don’t forget about the (unseen) elephant in the room: air pollution. Research has linked poor air quality with higher death rates from COVID-19. Prior to the pandemic, scientists estimated that 9,500 premature deaths each year in London were a result of air pollution (KCL, 2015). Never has there been a more pressing time for all of us to work together towards ensuring a cleaner, healthier and sustainable future for all Londoners. Interested in becoming an Ambassador championing that change? Apply here. New deadline is midnight, October 11th – we can’t wait to have you on board.
