The United Nations General Assembly adopted the Resolution to hold an International Day of Clean Air for blue skies on December 19, 2019, during its 74th session and invited the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to facilitate the observance of the International Day, in collaboration with other relevant organisations. The resolution stresses the importance of and urgent need to raise public awareness at all levels and to promote and facilitate actions to improve air quality.

The first International Day of Clean Air for blue skies will be observed on September 7, 2020. The first celebration will set a precedent for an important and exciting new international day for clean air to be celebrated annually. The observance of this Day is open to the UN member states, UN organisations, international as well as regional organisations and the civil society.

Given the current backdrop with the wide-scale transmission of COVID-19, the Day assumes an even more important role in propagating the urgent need to address air pollution and the challenges it poses while adding emphasis on moving toward sustainability at an individual, national as well as global level. 

The official International Day of Clean Air for blue skies website will be available soon at http://cleanairblueskies.org/. In the meantime, you can register your events via this form. The theme for the Day is #CleanAirforAll.
