Why air quality matters and how you can get involved

Event Date: 13 February 2020

Thu, 13 February 2020, 15:30 – 18:00, The Joseph Lappin Centre, 42 Mill Lane, L13 5TF

Are you concerned about the quality of air in our area? Come along and find out more about local pollution and what can do.

At this event you will:

  • See the new animation created by Better Old Swan’s (BOS) Citizens’ Science air pollution project and hear from the local schoolchildren about their fears
  • Discuss why actions to improve air quality is a health priority for our region
  • Learn about new air quality research and policy, share your ideas, and hear how you can get involved

Residents, supported by Liverpool Charity and Voluntary Services (LCVS), local businesses and a range of professionals working in the Old Swan, got together between 2016 and 2019 to form BOS. BOS focus and discussions included the local economy, in particular regeneration of the high street and improvements to the environment. One activity was a Citizens’ Science project to measure indoor and outdoor air pollution in the area.

Poor air quality is a big issue in many areas of the North West Coast: air pollution has an impact on people’s health and quality of life and increases demand for NHS services.

The Applied Research Collaboration in the North West Coast (ARC NWC) is a new grouping of universities, local authorities, NHS and other organisations working with members of the public to undertake research into local health priorities – this is an opportunity for you to hear about this work and get involved.
