Our children are breathing unsafe levels of pollution in our cities. These toxic emissions are especially harmful to our children's health, causing lifelong damage to their developing lungs.
Exposure to air pollution can lead to:
Chronic lung disease and stunting
Anxiety and depression
Poor concentration and ability to focus
And this is just to name a few – in fact, research has found that air pollution may be harming every organ in the body.
For the sake of our children's health and future, it's time to take action. Join us in calling on Europe's leaders to set bold, clear targets to reduce air pollution which are fully aligned with the latest science.
