Councillors have the power to bring in measures that will improve air quality, and we need to show support for this.
On Clean Air Day, we will be calling for councillors to respond to their communities’ concerns about clean air. Make sure they know how important it is to you: we've made it as easy as possible to contact your local councillor for Clean Air Day and ask them what they are doing to bring cleaner air to your area.
Start now by following the step-by-step instructions below. You may find it helpful to open WritetoThem in a new tab.
Write your message
We have created a short template to share some ideas of what your letter could include (see below). However, if you can, please do share your own stories and reflections in the letter - it will make it feel more memorable and help the message stand out.
Introduce yourself - councillors want to hear about the issues that concern their residents so please do include your address and postcode.
Follow up - ask your councillor for a response, and forward it onto us when you get it - [email protected]
Say thank you! If your council are being brave on this topic, say thank you! We need bold politicians to tackle air pollution
