Educating about sustainable strategies to reduce air pollution and protect health is the backbone of our efforts. We offer Clean Air Advocacy Training and Healthy Air Education to increase understanding of air pollution in under-resourced communities, increase enthusiasm for reducing emissions, and encourage participants to take actions to protect their health.
The Clean Air Advocacy Training offers tools and resources for community members to act on and advocate for cleaner air, as well as an opportunity to hear from local air quality professionals working on these issues.
