ClairCity is an innovative project involving thousands of people in cities across Europe, enabling us all to decide the best local options for a future with clean air and lower carbon emissions. ClairCity is funded by the European Union and is a four year project (2016-2020) working directly with citizens and local authorities in six countries around Europe.
The effects of poor air quality are felt worldwide, but the sources are usually local. Every day, air pollution is caused by our commutes to work, by heating our homes, or through our local industries. Understanding how we live – and the restrictions we face in those choices – is key to improving air quality. Solutions at a local level can make a big difference and so we supported the team at ClairCity to bring their ideas to life as a collection of lessons spanning several curriculum subjects including maths, science, English as well as a thought provoking assembly.
"As a research project, it is definitely helpful to have the input from the SH team to make sure our resources will really work for teachers and schools. Their free access platform makes it very easy to direct people to our resources and feels like a “seal of approval” on our work."
