September 7, 2020 marks the world's first International Day of Clean Air for blue skies – whose observance is facilitated by the UN Environment Progamme (UNEP). Each year, this day will raise public awareness on air pollution and encourage actions to improve air quality. The Republic of Korea led global efforts to create this occasion.
International Day of Clean Air for blue skies aims to promote international cooperation and encourage collective action among the international community in improving the quality of air.
Red Velvet, a globally well-known Korean pop artist who works with the UN Development Programme as a Goodwill Ambassador, features in this video clip to raise public awareness in tackling air pollution and climate change.
Red Velvet and future generations call for small changes in our everyday lives to fulfill our promise to keep clean air and blue skies. Listen to the voices of future generations around the world who take climate actions for a better tomorrow!
