The International Day of Clean Air for blue skies 2021 will be commemorated on the theme “Healthy Air, Healthy Planet” which emphasizes the health aspects of air pollution, especially considering the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year’s focus is on prioritizing the need for healthy air for all, while keeping the conversation broad enough to encompass other critical issues such as climate change, human and planetary health as well as the Sustainable Development Goals.
By resolution 74/212 of 22 January 2020, the UN General Assembly designated 7 September as the International Day of Clean Air for blue skies.
