Event Postponed - Achieving cleaner air for all

Join a panel of experts to discuss what can be done to tackle air quality and achieve cleaner air for all.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, it is with regret that we have decided to postpone this event due to take place 3 December.

We’ll share details of any future session once they’re confirmed and very much hope you’ll still be able to join us.


Air pollution kills 64,000 people each year in England alone, with at least 1,200 deaths in Greater Manchester, and with disadvantaged communities disproportionately impacted. How can we level up and achieve cleaner air for all?
