The East Central Scotland VEP provides a range of resources and information on air pollution that will interest students, teachers and parents in Central Scotland.
We also provide a range of services to discourage idling around schools and encourage parents, and schools, who believe they have a problem with car pollution to get in contact with us.
Please use the videos below to show your children in the effects of vehicle pollution and idling. Perhaps you may learn something too!
Does your school have a problem with idling cars and buses?
If so please report it to us. We can raise awareness in many ways, such as the placement of anti- idling signage.
A child’s lungs are constantly developing and working much faster than adults. Therefore they are more susceptible to the effects of air pollution. You would not subject a child to cigarette smoke, yet vehicle emissions are just as dangerous and most drivers will park with their engines running outside of schools. It is harmful. Switch off your engine and let the children breathe.
