Tower Hamlets school leads Air Pollution campaign
Pupils at St Paul’s School Whitechapel, a member of Tower Hamlets Citizens, have launched a video on air pollution. As part of a fantastic yearly project, run jointly by THAMES and Rich Mix Cinema, they have learnt and put into practice stop motion skills.
The students are at the forefront of a Borough-wide campaign to raise awareness of the negative impact of air pollution and demand better air quality by learning about community organising, putting their learning in practice and striking collaborative relationships with Tower Hamlets Council.
Pupils and staff meet Deputy Mayor of Tower Hamlets, Rachel Blake.
By working with Deputy Mayor Rachel Blake, who is also the Chairwoman of the local council's Air Pollution Board, the school hopes to showcase their video on Tower Hamlets Council's website. They are also running a listening campaign on clear air and holding a 'clean air classroom' competition. Finally, they've been recognised as a 'Green Champion School' in the Borough.
