Event Summary
Poor air quality is one of the major public health challenges in Birmingham. We know that the negative impacts of poor air quality are worse for the poorest, most vulnerable residents and those with long-term health conditions.
This event is a chance to find out more about how poor air quality affects all of our lives and give your views on what can be done both individually and collectively to improve things.
Birmingham is part of the wider West Midlands region and should be well-placed to make improvements to air quality as we have leading hospitals, universities, a major transport network and committed, active citizens.
This evening event will bring together doctors, scientists, social enterprises, charities, community groups and policy experts to address your questions and discuss solutions. We will explore the different types of pollutants that we breath in our daily lives, the health risks, and how this puts pressure on our healthcare services. We will also look at how research can shape air quality and health policies to improve the lives of those in our city.
There will be a mixture of presentations, interactive sessions, and time for discussion and networking. Come along to meet experts in the field, and other like-minded people with whom you can join forces to make positive change.
