Cotton Court Business Centre, Ainsworth Suite
1.00pm-4.00pm

This event is organised by Lancashire County Council and is not run by Champs Collaborative. Please book by following the instructions below.

The aim of this event is to understand what we need to do to accelerate system wide progress toward improving air quality across the North West Region, challenging and extending our understanding of the ‘whole system’ and ways in which we might better mobilise it for action, building on work undertaken so far and the recommendations of the recent Cheshire and Merseyside and Lancashire and Cumbria Air Quality Summits.

It will be an opportunity to improve our understanding of the ways in which we can mobilise the range of people who do not see improving health as a primary purpose of what they do, and yet without whom the fundamental changes we need cannot be brought about, exploring and developing the theories, strategies and tactics that may help us to do this. 

As such, we ask that you identify and invite colleagues from outside of public health who have a role to play in improving air quality such as environmental health managers, but also and importantly, those who may not see it as a primary purpose of what they do, such as planners, highways, businesses, schools and communities; those who can help build and challenge our understanding.  

Please confirm attendance (name, role, organisation & email) to phadmin@lancashire.gov.uk  and also do forward on to PH colleagues in your areas.
