Global recognition of the forms and drivers of pollution has never been stronger, and we now recognise the links between pollution, climate change, biodiversity, global health, and economic recovery. As the world emerges from the COVID-19 Pandemic, there’s hope for a concerted approach to the challenges ahead at this year’s COP26, and Biodiversity COP15.
The EU Delegation to the UK invites you to attend this free, public webinar, with a panel of experts on pollution and air quality. They will be discussing the European Commission’s new Zero Pollution Action Plan, the equivalent of the climate net-zero target for pollution, and how the UK and EU are acting on air-pollution control and mitigation.
As we rapidly approach multiple climate tipping points, the conversation around air quality has never been more urgent. The EU and the UK clearly recognise that societal and global benefits of tackling pollution far outweigh the cost of inaction. This webinar will explore if and how they can collaborate and achieve a toxic-free environment by 2050.
Daisy Dunne, Climate Correspondent for The Independent, will be leading the discussion, with Destiny Boka Botesa, Co-founder of Choked Up; Jane Burston, Executive Director of the Clean Air Fund; Seb Dance, former MEP and Vice Chair of the European Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety; Dr Audrey de Nazelle, Chair of the Network of Excellence on Air Quality, Imperial College London; Joanna Drake, Deputy Director-General for Environment, the European Commission; Shirley Rodrigues, Deputy Mayor of London for Environment and Energy.
