Clean Transport Less Pollution - 1.30-4.30pm Wednesday 25 January at Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI), High School Yards, 12 Infirmary St EH1 1LT.
What are the City's plans to curb air pollution from vehicle emissions? How are the Clean Air Zones progressing? What role do Electric Vehicles play in cutting carbon emissions? What are "particulates" and how do they affect our health? And lastly - what is the potential for much cleaner vehicles?
These are all questions which will be addressed by our contributors:
Councillor Lesley Hinds, Convener of Transport for Edinburgh (TfE)
Keith Stark, Enterprise Car Club
Emilia Hanna, Local Air Pollution Campaigner, Friends of the Earth
Nigel Holmes, Scottish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association.
