To help reduce people’s exposure to air pollution I have funded the installation of green screens in 62 schools across 22 boroughs: Barking & Dagenham, Barnet, Brent, Bromley, Camden, Ealing, Enfield, Greenwich, Hammersmith and Fulham, Haringey, Hounslow, Islington, Kensington & Chelsea, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Newham, Richmond, Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Wandsworth and Westminster.
Screens were installed in 40 schools in locations exceeding legal air pollution limits that took part in my School Air Quality Audit Programme. A further 21 schools have also received funding for green screens through my Greener City Fund Community Green Space Grants. One school green screen has also been funded through my Crowdfund London programme.
I have also published guidance for boroughs and others on designing green infrastructure projects to protect people from air pollution, which is available on my website at: https://www.london.gov.uk/WHAT-WE-DO/environment/environment-publications/using-green-infrastructure-protect-people-air-pollution
