Including young people

Not only are young people our future, they are also one of the groups that are most at risk from air pollution. That is why we are getting them involved in ClairCity.

Secondary school workshops

We are available to run workshops for 11-18 year olds in schools, colleges or youth groups in the Bristol region. We have interactive activities to help young people understand more about the risks and health impacts of air pollution, and a set of challenges for them to decide how they would improve their area and city. We can also talk about STEM, social science and geography careers related to our work, fit into a wider activity day for the school, work with a science or environment club or other extra-curricular activity.

Please contact corra.boushel@uwe.ac.uk for more information.

Primary school activities

We had extra funding from UWE Bristol to create activities for primary schools. We have run sessions with over 800 children around Bristol to pilot the activities. These materials are now shared for free for all schools to access.

“The children learnt so much – they particularly enjoyed getting to do a science experiment in a ‘real lab’ and wearing the coats, goggles and gloves. The Top Trumps session was also enjoyed by all. From our point of view, writing and sending the Mayor letters made the learning purposeful and very real for the children.” Teacher, Year 5

“Great stuff!” Darren Jones MP
