About this event

With 80% of us living in areas where air quality exceeds safe limits, how can we address the air pollution crisis? Not only does air quality impact human health, it also affects ecosystems, the challenges around climate change and our national heritage.

Join Professors Paul Monks, Professor John Remedios, Professor Anna Hansell, Dr Karen Exley and Dr Joshua Vande Hey as they explore the issues and discuss the solutions with a thought-provoking discussion and Q&A.

Free parking is available at Brookfield House, via Holmfield Road entrance however, in the interest of reducing our air pollution and carbon footprints, please walk, cycle, or rideshare if possible.” Plan your journey here www.choosehowyoumove.co.uk/journeyplanner/

After the talk, please join us for drinks and canapés where you will get the chance to network and carry on the discussions.
