Event description

Description

Levels of air pollution in Glasgow are breaking safety standards. Pollution has been linked with respiratory and cardiovascular illnesses, stunted foetal development as well as dementia and diabetes.

The Scottish Government has a duty to comply with clean air legal limits as soon as possible, and has promised to introduce a Low Emission Zone somewhere in Scotland by 2018.

Glasgow City Council’s leader has pledged to bring Scotland’s first Low Emission Zone here.

How do we make sure that the first Low Emission Zone is delivered on time, is ambitious enough to improve air quality, and delivered in a fair way?

Hear and debate the issues with campaigners and Councillors and members of the community.

Speakers: Councillor Anna Richardson, City Convener for Sustainability and Carbon Reduction, Emilia Hanna, Air Pollution Campaigner, Friends of the Earth Scotland

3 short talks, and a panel Q & A, chaired by Roger Downie, Friends of the Earth Glasgow

Doors open at 6:30, starts at 7:00, ends 8:30

Hosted by Friends of the Earth Glasgow and Friends of the Earth Scotland
