Keith Taylor MEP is hosting a public meeting in Brighton to discuss ways of tackling air pollution that experts claim leads to 40,000 premature deaths in Britain every year.
Dr Kirsty Smallbone, our Head of School, Andrea Lee, Healthy Air Campaigner at ClientEarth, and Keith Taylor, Green Party MEP for South East England, are keynote speakers at “Air Pollution – Plans to Tackle a Public Health Emergency” starting 6pm on 17 July at the Brighthelm Centre in North Road.
Keith Taylor said: “As a member of both the European Parliament’s Transport and Environment committees, I am confronted on a daily basis with the discrepancy between the current approach to ensure mobility across Europe and the pressure this puts on our air and resources and the planet’s climate.
“Brussels and London, two cities between which I regularly travel, are proven to be among the most polluted and congested cities in all of Europe. Our transport sector is on an unsustainable path that puts at stake our climate, public health and life quality.”
