Clean and Healthy Air – Are we getting there? (Sustainable Transport Futures – seminar)

event on
21 March

How we get around has implications for how clean the air we breathe is. Road transport is the major contributor to air pollution in Greater Manchester. This means how we get around, what vehicles we use, and how we use them, has implications for our health. Research has found connections between air pollution and early deaths, respiratory conditions, dementia, and child development.

Our seminar will look at the implications of air pollution and what the transport sectors needs to do to clean up its act. We’ll look in particular at and discuss plans for Greater Manchester in the context of national legislation.

Speakers: TBC
