The very first International Day of Clean Air for blue skies will be held on September 7th, 2020.
The Day aims to:
The United Nations General Assembly adopted the Resolution to hold an International Day of Clean Air for blue skies on December 19, 2019, during its 74th session and invited the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to facilitate the observance of the International Day, in collaboration with other relevant organizations. The Climate and Clean Air Coalition worked with UNEP and the Republic of Korea to advocate for the day in the lead up to the decision.
The Coalition is working closely with UNEP, the Republic of Korea – through the National Council on Climate and Air Quality (NCCA), and Germany – through GIZ, and other partners to coordinate global activities for the day.
The first celebration will set a precedent for an important and exciting new international day for clean air to be celebrated annually. The Coalition calls on all partners to participate and contribute to the success of the day.
