Oxfordshire Schools Clean Air Network (OxSCAN) is an Oxford Friends of the Earth programme set up in 2019. We are doing this in cooperation with the City and County council staff who are working with schools on transport and pollution.
We are now looking to develop our contacts with schools. These can be via teachers, governors and of course parents and students.
As part of this work we are running a short survey of what schools are doing. Please take five minutes to fill it in – click here.
Oxford clean air day seminar
On June 20th 2019 Oxford FoE held a seminar at County Hall on work by schools on air pollution and active travel. We heard from Windmill School and Botley School (both primaries) and Cherwell School (secondary) as well as the County and City councils and the OxAir group. There were a number of useful presentations and the slides for those presentations can be accessed here.
.A report of the ongoing survey being done by Oxford FOE on schools activity will be available shortly.
The presentations were:
- Work by Windmill School – Lynn Knapp, head teacher
- The Cherwell School Travel Action Group – Simon Banks
- Reducing pollution by encouraging active and healthy travel – Richard Kuziara, Oxfordshire County Council
- Communicating Air Quality – Pedro Abreu, Oxford City Council
Information about the OxAir project and their mobile measurement work can be found here.
If you are interested or have any questions please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
We would be particularly keen to make contact if you are involved with a school in any way and can help us make contact.
We need more people to help with this work – we welcome anyone who would like to be involved for a few hours each month.
