Working with Nafas Group in National Clean Air Day

Over 1200 signatures have been collected in a petition to modernize Tehran’s minibus fleet

“Together, our small steps will go a long way!”

On December 29, Tehrani citizens joined Nafas group to sign a petition for minibus modernization.

Following a briefing session, on January 24 at the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation office, members and volunteers joined Nafas Group to take a small but effective step in reducing air pollution in Tehran, on the Clean Air Day. Marked with black balloons to signify air pollution and scrolls of fabric wound around few timeworn minibuses at Tajrish terminal from 7 am until 11 am this group aimed to raise awareness and collect signatures from passengers and pedestrians.

According to members of Nafas, in this event more than one thousand two hundred signatures have been collected. Members of Nafas say: “We are collecting citizens signatures to petition for 1200 new minibus to be procured for Tehran, each with 17 seats. We will follow-up this event and take more action as needed.”
