Helping to reduce air pollution is often cited as a reason to walk or bike. However, most of us are unfamiliar with the different types of air pollution and how they affect children compared to adults. In this webinar, Pat Childers, of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will walk us through a basic introduction to the different sources and types of air pollution and how they relate to Safe Routes to School. This basic overview will also teach you how to determine the types of air pollution that are of the greatest concern in your area. Mr. Childers will also discuss various school-related air pollution programs being implemented by EPA.

Mr. Childers presentation will be followed by a ten minute overview of the work Dan Powell is doing with schools in the Greenville County area to reduce idling, improve air quality, and increase walking and bicycling to school. Dan will also discuss how to involve students in the process of evaluating air quality changes.

This webinar is part of the Safe Routes to School Coaching Action Network Webinar Series, developed by America Walks and the National Center for Safe Routes to School.
