Greater London suffers from serious air pollution caused by road traffic. This project created, implemented, and evaluated the “Zero Heroes” program—initiated by the Croydon Council—to teach primary school children about causes and effects of air pollution and methods to reduce it. The program comprises a day of walking to school, plus lesson plans, group activities, and competitions for schools selected. Pre- and post-testing suggests that the program instills pollution-related knowledge and behavioral change, and can be replicated and sustained in other schools in the future.
