Realising The Health Benefits Of Cleaner Air

About Realising The Health Benefits Of Cleaner Air

Air pollution is a national health emergency in the UK. It harms the health of hundreds of thousands, with estimates linking poor air to around 40,000 early deaths each year. Many of these early deaths occur in cities, where road transport is one of the leading causes of air pollution, and so policies at the city-level are crucial to solving the problem. What's more, action to reduce air pollution - such as cycling and walking instead of using a car - could unlock enormous health benefits for millions of people, creating, in turn, cleaner, safer, more liveable cities.

Join us in Glasgow on Clean Air Day for a discussion on the air quality crisis in Scotland and Glasgow, one of the UK’s most polluted cities, the solutions for tackling it and the large health benefits that could be realised in the process.
