We are excited to be holding our next #WenForum at the Ecology Pavilion, situated amongst the picturesque lakes and reed beds of Mile End Park. The event will kick off with summer cocktails and snacks and time to peruse the exhibition and stalls. We have a fantatic panel of speakers lined up with ample time for Q&As. There will be a further opportunity to network and visit stalls at the end of the evening.

We have a limited number of early bird tickets available - so don't hang about!


Here are just some of the issues we will be covering:

  • Is pollution an equality issue?

  • How is air pollution affecting people differently?

  • Who is more vulnerable to air pollution?

  • What are the health impacts of air pollution?

  • What solutions are there for combating air pollution?
