Project Description

Air Quality Testing at Brackenwood Infants School

Rethink Now worked with Brackenwood Infant School community to improve the air quality in the areas immediately surrounding the school.

Air quality testing took place for a week in Spring 2019. A different route was walked each morning with parents and children, with measurements taken along the route.

The results were quite stark – each day pollution increased as we approached the school.

As a result of the action and results, Living Streets applied their fantastic WOW scheme to both Brackenwood Infants and Junior schools. The infants have already reported a large rise in the percentage of children walking, cycling or scooting to school. Result!
