Clean Air Day is a special chance for kids to spend time outdoors, celebrate active transportation, and learn how air quality impacts our health and the health of the environment.  

Clean Air Day has been adapted this year in response to recent school closures and the COVID-19 outbreak. Instead of a large community event, we encourage kids, teachers, and families to celebrate at home with your family, your teacher or online class!

Take a Clean Air Day pledge, and build a celebration that is safe, healthy, and fun!

When you register, you’ll receive a Clean Air Day kit with resources and fun activities.
