Clearing The Air
One of Clean Air Sudbury’s largest initiatives is to produce Clearing the Air, a report on air quality trends in Greater Sudbury. This report is updated every five years with information collected from public databases by the Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks and the Sudbury Sulphur Dioxide (SO2) Monitoring Network. The most recent report was released on Clean Air Day 2016 (June 8, 2016) and encompasses data from 2008 – 2014. This report, along with a complementary summary report (provided in both French and English), can be found in the Reports and Presentations.
Sudbury Regional Science Fair
Clean Air Sudbury has a long history of supporting the Sudbury Regional Science Fair by sponsoring an award for the best project related to air quality and climate change.
Award: Clean Air Sudbury
Project: (3201) What Material is the Most Sustainable
Student: Rebecca Jacob
School: Lasalle Secondary School
Clean Air Sudbury provides free air quality and climate change workshops to classrooms across Greater Sudbury. These educational workshops are offered in either French or English and can be adapted to students from Grade 1 – 12. Specific topics may be requested to enhance current learning objectives. In 2018 for example, Clean Air Sudbury and Science North challenged high school students to research and design a living wall or vertical garden to be built and displayed at Science North.
Clean Air Sudbury actively seeks opportunities to educate and engage the public through environmental events, conferences and trade shows. For example, in October 2015, Clean Air Sudbury gave a presentation at the Northern Green Leadership and Learning Conference at the Willet Green Miller Centre at Laurentian University.
