Why I work for Clean Air Fund:
To me, air pollution is one of the biggest overlooked public health issues, affecting people without them even realising it. Tacking air pollution is critical not only for people’s health, but also for the planet. Through its work, Clean Air Fund generates co-benefits for climate and public health at the same time, and I find it extremely rewarding to contribute to this work.
