We all know that eating well and exercising more is good for us. But did you know that being more active and using public transport can also improve our health and our environment too? If we all get involved by making some fairly small changes in how we behave we can potentially make a huge impact on the quality of the air we breathe.
Transport for Greater Manchester are keen to hear your ideas on ways to reduce pollution in the area and make it a healthier, cleaner place to live.
In 60 seconds we want you to create a radio or video advert that explains the dangers poor air quality can have on our health and the easy things everybody can do to reduce pollution. These changes could be as simple as switching off the car engine during the school drop off, walking to school and avoiding busy roads, or travelling by tram, bus or train. These are just a couple of examples of the types of things that can be done.
You’ll find loads of additional information to help you write and produce your advert here on the Collaborate Digital website. The shortlisted schools will have the opportunity to show off what you have achieved at a prestigious event at Media City, and there’ll be some fabulous prizes for the winning schools.
Clean Air Day is on Thursday 21st June and the deadline to submit your finished ads is the following day, Friday 22nd June.
The judges will be listening out for enthusiasm, accurate information and lots of personality. So get creative, have fun and good luck!
