An open letter to the Mayor of London on air pollution

Greenpeace have launched an online letter calling on Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, to implement the most effective solutions to London's air pollution, as urgently as possible. London’s air is toxic and illegal. Almost a quarter of school children in the capital are exposed to levels of air pollution that are so high that they break legal limits. Children and young people are the ones who are most vulnerable to poor air quality. From asthma to effects on mental and cognitive health - polluted air is bad for children. We know that early age exposure to air pollution can have a life-long impact, including reduced lung function, harm to the heart, brain, hormone and immune systems, and increased risk of lung cancer.
