CleanAirDayClean Air Day 2018 co-ordinated by environmental charity Global Action Plan is Thursday 21st JuneGlasgow City Council are holding an event from 10am to 2pm on Thursday 21 June in George Square which will showcase a huge range of exhibits and activities such as active travel, renewable energy, e-bikes, car clubs and electric vehicles that can all help to improve air quality as well as a mini-pump track provided by 2018 European Championships!

Air pollution is real and harms the health of millions. But there are lots of simple things we can do to improve air quality and look after our own and other people’s health. Clean Air Day is a chance to find out more about air pollution, share information with friends and colleagues, and help make the air cleaner and healthier for everyone.

What are your plans for Clean Air Day? Why not walk or cycle to work or school – and if you already do this, organise an event? For more information on how to do this in your community, at work or in school, download one of the free toolkits. Share your plans by emailing cleanerair@globalactionplan.org.uk

cycletowork-logoCycle to Work Day is a national event and this year will be held on Wednesday 13 September 2017.

Cycle to Work Day encourages adults across the UK to get on their bike and give cycle commuting a go for one day. Why – because cycling to work is brilliant! It’s an easy way to boost your health and fitness, improve your wellbeing and show some love to the environment.

This year’s event takes place on Wednesday 13 September and it’s the fifth birthday – so the celebration of cycling will be bigger than ever! Today, it’s a way of celebrating those who are already passionate cycle commuters, as well as those who are giving it a go for the very first time.

So dust off your favourite bike and get ready to join in the UK’s biggest one-day celebration of cycle commuting on Wednesday 13 September 2017.

There are lots of great prizes to be won – all you need to do is pledge to cycle to work and follow them on Twitter and like them on Facebook

So why not challenge your friends, colleagues and your employer to take part in this years’s Cycle to Work Day!

According to the census data, 760,000 people in the UK cycle to work regularly – this number keeps growing steadily, but with Cycle to Work Day’s help we are aiming to make those numbers skyrocket this year and beyond! By 2021, we hope to see one million people regularly commuting to work by bike.

MicroVolunteeringDay2016Microvolunteering Day is now in its third successful year, and is a unique opportunity for people to join together in a synchronised effort to demonstrate the empowering potential of the microvolunteering concept. This year Microvolunteering Day is on Friday 15 April 2016.

So what is microvolunteering? It’s a way of making the world a better place via bite-sized action, sometimes in as little as 10 minutes. You don’t even have to get out of your pyjamas or your favourite armchair! You can travel the world – take some time out of your lunch break to map Genghis Khan’s tomb!

Don’t fancy Mongolia? If you visit the Microvolunteering Day website or Facebook page you can choose from over 800 micro-actions ranging from writing a postcard to someone who needs cheering up, to recording some information about a local tree for the Treezila project which is attempting to make a monster map of every tree in the United Kingdom. There aren’t too many trees in Glasgow currently on the Treezila map so why not get your tape measure out and let’s show everyone what a Dear Green Place it is. You don’t even really need to check the list – grab a rubbish sack and clear the litter outside your house or pop to the shops for an elderly neighbour.

Find a cause you care about and a few spare moments in your life and make a difference. Take a photo or share your story via Twitter using #MicroDay or on Facebook using #MicroDay

1 day, 24 hours, 10 minutes to do good! Be Inspired. Be Involved!
