Air Quality Awareness Week
Air Quality Awareness Week (AQAW) 2023 is May 1-5.
EPA is partnering with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Weather Service, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Forest Service, U.S. National Park Service, U.S. Department of Energy, and U.S. Department of State, as well as state, local, and tribal agencies to share information with the public about efforts to protect and improve air quality. This week also includes World Asthma Day on Tuesday, May 2nd.
The theme for this year is, “Working Together for Clean Air”. Air Quality Awareness Week highlights resources that increase air quality awareness and to encourage people to take action and incorporate air quality knowledge into their daily living.
Air Quality Awareness Week also provides an opportunity for people to learn about what causes poor air quality and how people can prepare for and respond to events and environments with poor air quality – not just during the month of May, but year-round!
