The Clean Air Parents’ Network is hosting a Clean Air for Children Question Time in London on 6th February 2019. The event will be held from 6-8.30pm at St Martin In-The-Fields and free tickets can be ordered here. The event is open to parents, carers and those who want to protect young lungs in London.
On the panel will be Deputy Mayor Shirley Rodrigues, who works closely with the Mayor of London on his plans to tackle this public health crisis. She will be joined by Alex Williams, Director of Borough Planning, Transport for London and Councillor Clyde Loakes, Deputy Leader and Clean Air lead, London Borough of Waltham Forest.
The audience will have the opportunity to ask London policy and decision makers how they are helping to make the capital a safer and healthier city for our children to grow up in, and to come together with other concerned Londoners to discuss how we can make our voices heard and make a real difference to the health of our children.
Children in London are being exposed to illegal and harmful levels of air pollution. This is not only harming their health now but can also have impacts throughout the rest of their lives.
With just months to go before the introduction of the Ultra Low Emission Zone in April, it is a crucial time for cleaning up the capital’s toxic air. The city needs urgent action to tackle pollution from road transport and protect our children where they live, learn and play.
Please share the details of this event in your networks and encourage any concerned parents and carers you know to attend!
