Are we making progress towards cleaner air for Londoners?
With the Government planning to invest £304 million into helping local authorities reduce nitrogen dioxide emissions and improve air quality, we take a look back at our panel discussion with the experts campaigning to clean up the air we breathe.
The UK was the first major economy to legislate for a target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and has already cut carbon emissions by more than any other G7 country; but are we doing enough?
Our expert panel discuss ways we can clean up the capital’s air, and the extent to which this issue is affecting us all.
Moderator Lucy Siegle, British journalist and reporter for BBC’s ‘The One Show’, is joined by Green Party’s Jenny Jones, Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb, who introduced The Clean Air (Human Rights) Bill to the House of Lords in 2018; Simon Alcock, Head of Public Affairs and Campaigns at ClientEarth; Celeste Hicks, Independent Journalist specialising in Africa and a campaigner for ‘Mums for Lungs’; and Dr Ian Mudway, Senior Lecturer at the School of Population Health and Environmental Sciences at Kings College London.
