How Detmold beats air pollution this World Environment Day
June 5, 2019
World Environment Day is a United Nations initiative to increase awareness for a need to protect and improve our environment.
The theme in 2019 is around beating air pollution – chosen by this year’s host, China.
The theme incites organisations, companies and individuals to consider how changes can be made to everyday life to reduce the amount of air pollution we produce.
Impacting on our own health, as well as the health of the environment, the United Nations reports that 9 out of 10 people are exposed to levels of air pollutants that exceed safe levels set by the World Health Organisation.
