World Athletics launches Every Breath Counts to call for urgent action to improve air quality

I want to live in a world where everyone can breathe clean air. Did you know that 99% of people worldwide breathe unsafe air, polluted to the point of exceeding World Health Organization exposure limits? Air pollution is a hidden threat that claims more than seven million lives every year. Our vision is a world where people can run, exercise and play freely – without the risk of serious health effects from air pollution. That’s why we’re committed to safeguarding the future of sport by ensuring access to clean air for all.
