We are holding the first in a series of three webinars exploring the concept of Place – with the first celebrating Clean Air Day on the morning of Thursday, October 8th.
Our event will feature three expert speakers who will talk about poor air quality as a contemporary threat to health and wellbeing.
Viewed through the prism of Place, we will examine the potential of policies targeting air pollution not only to improve health and wellbeing but also to secure wider environmental and equity benefits implicit in a ‘Triple Win.’
