Ventilation manufacturer Nuaire, is highlighting national Clean Air Day on the 21st of June with with School Events.

BEAMA Member, ventilation manufacturer Nuaire, based in Caerphilly, is highlighting national Clean Air Day on the 21st of June with an Air Quality Interactive Workshop with a local primary school, Cwrt Rawlin. Volunteers from Nuaire will also be planting an Air Quality Garden at the school and are participating in a ‘green’ journey to work and leaving their car at home.

Air pollution harms the health of millions, leading to respiratory problems which are particularly detrimental to children and impact on their lung function growth.  According to a recent World Health Organisation (WHO) report, 44 UK cities have air too toxic to breathe safely.  Caerphilly is sadly home to Wales’ most polluted road, where levels of nitrogen dioxide are higher than anywhere but central London.

Clean Air Day is celebrated annually and is co-ordinated by Global Action Plan. It is a chance to find out more about air pollution, share information with friends and colleagues, and help make the air cleaner and healthier for everyone.

As a part of this year’s Clean Air Day, Nuaire is hosting an Air Quality Interactive Workshop for a class of 30 year 3 children from Cwrt Rawlin Primary School in Caerphilly.  The workshop will feature engaging and fun presentations and scientific experiments that look at indoor air quality, how to reduce air pollutants in the home as well as a cyclone ball game where the teams will be challenged to remove the most ‘NOX particle’ balls. They will also host a factory tour of their facilities. Furthermore, as a part of the event, a team of Nuaire employees will be planting an ‘air quality garden’ at Cwrt Rawlin School to encourage school children to think about ways to reduce air pollution.

Nuarie is a large employer in South Wales with over 400 staff based in Caerphilly. For more information about Nuarie and their activities on Clean Air Day, visit their website here.
