We need a global means of assessing whether national governments are doing enough to protect their citizens from the dangers of air pollution.

Helen Clark

The vision of clean air can become a reality because we possess the knowledge, technology, and resources to make a change. We only need political will.

Soumya Swaminathan

We need a global means of assessing whether national governments are doing enough to protect their citizens from the dangers of air pollution.

Maria Neira

We need collective action to forge cross-sectoral agreements and create partnerships that go beyond the local level.

Olusoji Adeyi

Investing in clean air is investing in climate action — it reduces emissions and improves economic outcomes, for both businesses and people.

Jane Burston

Air pollution has no boundary. That’s why our efforts must be global and focus on creating a bridge between countries to accelerate action on clean air.

Puji Lestari

Clean air is not a luxury; it is a fundamental right and an asset. Achieving clean air is pivotal for human development, yet it is often put on the back burner.

Arunabha Ghosh

We need better ways of connecting governments to the international community so they build the capacity they need to address air pollution.
