Air pollution may be a familiar environmental issue, but with levels continuing to rise, it is now an urgent public health crisis. Air pollution kills 6.5 million people each year and contributes significantly to climate change.

Cities can rapidly reduce air pollution through proven solutions, such as regulating vehicle emissions and implementing rapid transit networks, but leaders will only act if they know it is important to their citizens.

Call on your leaders to become a BreatheLife city and support solutions that will clean our air, protect our health and keep our climate from warming.

Start a clean air revolution in your city

To: My city’s leaders

“On December 2nd, Paris, Madrid, Mexico City and Athens pledged to remove diesel vehicles from their roads by 2025. This unprecedented action will have a lasting impact on improving air quality and protecting the health of residents. We must join them in removing these heavy polluters from our roadways, incentivising cleaner vehicles and supporting cycling and walking infrastructure. Together we can breathe life back into our city and encourage others to do the same."

We will deliver your message to every single mayor in the C40, leaders that represent some of the largest cities in the world, and those that have a track record for taking bold climate action.
