Air quality volunteering - anti-idling event on 1 November

Bankside and You Opportunity
Join Better Bankside and Southwark Council for our first anti-idling event day, to encourage drivers to switch off their engines when stationary
18 Great Guildford Street

Help Better Bankside and Southwark Council improve local air quality. On 1 November we will be asking drivers who idle to switch off their engines when stationary. Idling degrades local air quality, impacts our health and creates unpleasant walking and cycling environments.

79% of local businesses want to see an improvement in air quality. One way to do this is by asking drivers not to idle. We will provide drivers with fun and interactive information on impacts of idling.   

Better Bankside are currently recruiting a team of enthusiastic volunteers who want to be part of this innovative education and behaviour change campaign to reduce localised air pollution and improve air quality in their workplace and residential community.

Join us between 9.30am-10.30am, starting at the Better Bankside Community Space where volunteers will be briefed about the activity.

If you are interested in attending this event or would like more information please contact info [at] betterbankside.co.uk (subject: Anti-idling%20event%201%20November) .
