To mark this year’s Clean Air Day, ventilation specialist Nuaire took part in an awareness event at a primary school in Newport.

The event at Jubilee Park Primary School, organised by Newport City Council, was attended by 30 children from five local schools and featured several organisations helping students learn about the sources and dangers of pollution, and highlighting the importance of clean air.

Caerphilly-based Nuaire demonstrated its Drimaster-Eco Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) system, which removes condensation and dampness from homes, but the star of the show was undoubtedly the Cyclone game where children had to grab as many ‘pollutant’ balls out of the cyclone within a set time.

The interactive game was fun but also had a genuine purpose: it helped illustrate the need to remove pollution from the air and provided a time-based activity that is good for improving concentration.

According to the World Health Organisation, air pollution is not only damaging to children’s lung function, but also affects neurodevelopment, leading to lower cognitive test outcomes, negatively affecting mental and motor development. This year’s Clean Air Day theme is Clean up the air to look after your mind, encouraging people to find out more about how air pollution impacts our mental, physical and planet's health.
