The Northern Air Quality Conference serves as a platform for business, local authorities and the third sector to learn and network as an industry.
As the levels of toxic air being registered in our towns and cities increase and the numbers of deaths which are attributed to air pollution grow, there is a clear and perceptual change in mind-set with regard to delivering policies which offer quantifiable solutions across health, energy, urban design and transport.
The Northern Air Quality News Conference explores some of the issues and the possible solutions to the increasing levels of toxic air in our communities.
The conference agenda includes presentations from organisations and sector leading specialists including:
- Dr Gary Fuller from King’s College London, directors from the Joint Air Quality Unit, Jane Burston from Clean Air Fund, Dr Suzanne Bartington from the University of Birmingham, Katie Neald from ClientEarth and Stephen Arnold from Birmingham City Council.
