Bookings opening soon for the National Air Quality Conference – Lord’s Cricket Ground, November 2021

The Northern Air Quality News 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 in our towns and cities increases and the numbers of deaths which are attributed to air pollution grow, there is a clear and perceptual change in mindset with regard to delivering policies that 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 Imperial College London,  Jane Burston from the Clean Air Fund, Cllr Sarah Warren, deputy leader of  Bath and North East Somerset Council and Katie Nield from ClientEarth.
