Oxfordshire Schools Clean Air Network

Oxford Friends of the Earth is a thriving and effective local group that has been active for over 40 years. Our purpose is to work together to promote a healthy and sustainable environment

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 also part of the Oxford Coalition for Healthy Streets and Active Travel – COHSAT. On the CoHSAT site there is a ‘schools page‘ with further information on how schools can take action on promoting clean air, healthy streets and active travel plans.

We are now looking to develop our contacts with schools. We need your help. These can be via teachers, governors and of course parents and students. We are looking to start with about 10-12 schools. Please contact us via cleanair@oxfoe.co.uk is you are involved with a school in any way and can help us make contact.

Our new competition for Oxford primary schools is launched (January 2020).  We are doing this in cooperation with Oxford City Council. We are asking them to design a banner to highlight the need for clear transport (especially to/from school).
 
 
There’s a £250 prize for the winning school so if you know anyone involved in a local school please share this. For more info email cleanair(at)oxfoe.co.uk

 

We need more people to help with this work – we welcome anyone who would like to be involved for a few hours each month.
