What is Clean Air Justice Network?
Clean Air Justice Network is a recently launched group facilitated by The Active Wellbeing Society. Bringing together like-minded organisations, campaigners and people from a wide range of professions and backgrounds to advocate for equity in air quality as a social justice matter.
Tackling air pollution is a social justice matter because it impacts everyone. What is clear is that air pollution does not impact on people equally – the health impacts of air pollution are a product of both susceptibility and exposure.
The social determinants of health are the non-medical factors that influence health outcomes. They are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life. These social determinants contribute to the inequity and inequality within air pollution.
We need positive action to ensure we tackle the health impacts of air pollution so that vulnerable groups including children can grow up as healthy adults; older people can live longer and healthier lives; and communities can flourish, free from the harmful effects of air pollution.
Clean Air Justice Network will work with systems partners and communities to ensure that the communities most impacted by air quality are supported to tackle the inequalities, and have a voice in the debate.
