Green Communities Canada tackled the issue of vehicle emissions around schools and the effect on students in the webinar: Dirty Drop-off: Children’s exposure to air pollutants at school.

Featured presenter Dr. Matthew Adams’ research has found elevated levels of air pollution from idling cars around designated school pick-up zones, and in nearby kindergarten and playground areas.

See a recording of the webinar here.

Resource materials to encourage the change to active school travel and clean air will soon be available on our website. Check our News page for the latest updates.
