Take part in our #StreetSignTakeover!
Join families across the country highlighting their concerns about roadside air pollution by re-naming local streets.
Raise awareness of roadside air pollution
This street sign action is a great way to draw attention to the public health scandal of toxic air, and to let local authorities and city mayors know we want them to take action.
Our DIY sticker packs have individual N, O and 2 stickers which you can use to add the chemical symbol for Nitrogen Dioxide – one of the most
harmful pollutants emitted by vehicles – to street signs near you.
Many parents and children have targeted school streets, to highlight the exposure they face every day on their way to school. And some have targeted well known roads with a high footfall, such as their local high street.
Whatever street you decide to rename, make sure you take lots of photos, ideally some with you in the picture and share on social media including @AirTeamUK and #StreetSignTakeover.
Why not tweet or email your action
to your local newspaper. Some parents who have renamed streets have appeared in the South London Press, BBC Bristol and Leeds TV – to name a few – so it’s always worth reaching out!
If you’d like to take part, have any questions or want support with reaching out to local media just drop us a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
