Event description

Description

Pollution and poor air quality, particularly in urban areas, is an increasing concern for local authorities, health and public services, and the public alike. This event will highlight both the problems and the practical engineering and policy solutions which may be applied now to address UK air quality challenges and opportunities. The emphasis will be on practical actionable advice, relevant and recent case studies, and signposting to information resources and proven solutions. This event aims to bring together people from across sectors to encourage inter-disciplinary exchange.
