Start our framework now!

Welcome to the Clean Air Schools for Hong Kong Action framework!

It is a free, online tool to help every primary school create a tailored Clean Air Action Plan to become a clean air school.

The Framework tailors a choice of actions across four key areas:

Outdoor environment of schools:
Tackle the air pollution generated at the school entrances, playgrounds and nearby environment.

Campaign for change using student/school voices to encourage local and national decision makers to make air quality improvements across your school.

Raise awareness of air pollution (sources, impacts & solutions) with students, family, the local community and beyond.

School operations:
Cut the air pollution that the school generates and reduce pollution levels in the classroom.

The Framework will support you to:

  • Become a local leader on air pollution
  • Educate the school community
  • Reduce indoor air pollution faced by the students
  • Tackle outdoor air pollution at the school entrances or playgrounds

How to use the clean air for schools framework:

Create your tailored air action plan in 4 simple steps. We estimate it will take about 15 minutes to complete.

1. First, fill in the basic background information of your school.
If your school has not participated in our programs before then we could get in touch with you to help you know more.

2. Next, answer a few questions about your school in the School Air Pollution Survey.
A basic understanding of your school’s operations is all you need. By answering the following questions as best as you can, you will identify the air pollution solutions that work best for your school.

3. Then, choose from the recommended actions.
You will be presented with a selection of air pollution actions based on their relevance and potential impact, alongside symbols that indicate their relative cost and effort to implement. We suggest you choose up to two actions for your plan to start with.

4. Over to you!
You will be presented with a clean air school action plan that also links to helpful resources and toolkits to help you to implement your chosen actions. When you have completed your first set of actions, return to the framework and add some more to your action plan to continue on your path to become a clean air school in the future.
