 Background:

Air pollution is now known to be associated with much greater public health risk than was understood even a decade ago, and more risks are emerging.  In the UK, air pollution is the largest environmental risk linked to deaths every year; around 5% of all deaths are attributable to air pollution fine particulate matter. Air pollution is associated with cardiovascular disease, lung cancer, respiratory disease, asthma and stroke. Air pollution disproportionately affects the young, older people, those with underlying cardiopulmonary conditions and those living in the most deprived areas.

Intended audience:

The intended audience for the workshop are all local stakeholders on air quality, especially those who have interest and influence on local environment and transport policy / strategy and those local authority staff with a role in air quality, including but not limited to public health, environmental health, planning, spatial planning, transport, and regeneration teams.

Aim:

To consider ways of improving public awareness and engagement for action on air quality

Workshop discussion points:

  • What are the best approaches for engaging our local population?
  • What can we do to develop a credible and meaningful stakeholder engagement plan?   
  • What resources do we need?
  • What action(s) can be taken by our local population to improve air quality (individually / at community level / beyond local community)?
