Is air quality important to you? It should be! We each take over 20,000 breaths per day. Common pollutants including nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, and particulate matter enter our bodies as we take these breaths. This can be particularly harmful for children, because they take in more air per pound of body weight than adults. That’s why Green Venture has partnered with Corr Research and the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change to bring Fresh Air for Kids to Hamilton schools!
‘Fresh Air for Kids’ is now available as a series of four modules encompassing 4-6 visits, up to two of these visits can be delivered in person while the rest will be held virtually as live video calls. Activities will be provided for classes to complete in between modules, including mapping a safe walk to school, graphing local air quality, and creating campaign materials such as posters, banners, and videos. Students will complete the program by displaying their campaign materials at their school or in the community to spread the anti-idling message.
