Campaigning for Clean Air in Wales

Air pollution in Wales harms our health and causes thousands of premature deaths every year. The air we breathe on the way to work, school and in our communities across Wales has illegal levels of pollution and we are calling on the Welsh Government to take urgent action on air pollution.
