To mark Clean Air Week, Cllr Claire Holland, Lambeth’s Cabinet Member for Envrionment & Clean air officially unveiled a new ‘green screen’ at a Brixton primary school today.
The screen of hedera ivy has been built alongside the playground of Corpus Christi primary school, blocking pollutants from Brixton Hill and enabling children to breathe cleaner air while they play.
Lambeth Labour have already got to work on delivering their ambitious manifesto. As part of their commitment to tackling air pollution councillors pledged to build a green screen at every school on a main road. Children at over 30 schools will benefit from the toxin-reducing living walls.
Over the next four years we will also:
- Plant over 1,000 new trees.
- Double the number of cycle hangars
- Install over 200 electric vehicle charging points
- Lobby the Government for a new Clean Air Act
- Continue to work with community energy cooperatives like Repowering London
