California’s Clean Air Day goal is to spread the message throughout California about air pollution and how it directly impacts all Californians’ health. Everyone is directly affected by air pollution. Only with the whole community’s help can we get the message out about how important clean air is to all our neighborhoods.
No Idling Campaign
Idling your vehicle for just 10 minutes puts out approximately 1 pound of carbon dioxide and creates dirty local air quality. Work with your schools, companies and communities to establish no idle policies for California Clean Air Day.
California Clean Air Day is a great opportunity to continue taking transit or to try it out for the first time. Throw a fun event around public transit to help people get out of their cars and onto the bus or train!
Choosing to bike, walk or another active transportation option instead of driving a vehicle can make a big impact on air quality. Check out our toolkit to promote people-powered transportation for California Clean Air Day.
Clean Air Fair
Putting on a Clean Air Fair is a fun, unique way to engage your community or organization as we unite to clear the air on California Clean Air Day. Check out these tips and sample activities to help you throw a fair to remember.
Proclaiming California Clean Air Day as an official day in your city is an important step to get the ball rolling for clean air in your community. Our sample resolution can be used either as a starting point or as on its own for your proclamation.
Spread the word about California Clean Air Day using our flyer templates. Post them at the office, coffee shop or community center! Flyers are available in both English and Spanish.
Media Advisory Template
Reach out to the media to bring awareness to your California Clean Air Day efforts and highlight your organization. Use the template as-is or as a starting point before contacting media.
Hospitals & Healthcare
Healthcare providers are in a unique position to directly communicate how air pollution affects both individual and community health. These resources will help get you started, and experts within your organization can find ways to engage your patients, staff, and stakeholders.
Schools & School Districts
School leaders (parents, teachers, administrators, etc.) are essential partners in improving the air quality at their schools and within their districts. The following guide is designed to help School Districts create tangible steps towards better air quality at local schools, generating better air quality for the students, faculty, and surrounding communities.
Businesses & Workplaces
As part of Clean Air Day, California businesses can start a new conversation about air pollution and what practical steps we all can take to reduce it. We have developed resources to engage your employees, clients/customers, and those you do business with to take an action to clear the air.
Community & Nonprofits
Connected communities are stronger communities, and California Clean Air Day offers community leaders to unite us around a non-political issue that affects us all. Find the way your organization plans to serve your members and your community by taking action to clear the air on Clean Air Day.
Cities & Local Governments
Cities, agencies and local governments have the ability to lead their communities to a more breathable future. Participating in Clean Air Day provides a unique opportunity to engage key community stakeholders including elected officials, key agency staff, and community and business leaders. As government entity, you can be a leader in the movement for clean air.
Transit agencies are helping to lead their communities to a more breathable future and have a role to play inspiring the actions of those they serve. Participating in CA Clean Air Day on October 2, 2019 provides a unique opportunity to engage ridership and key community stakeholders including elected officials, key agency staff, and community and business leaders.
