Description

Air pollution causes over 200 excess deaths each year in Edinburgh.

Although we can’t see it, pollution is so bad that Scottish air quality standards are being broken in key parts of Edinburgh. If we had clean air everyone's lives would be extended by an average of 6 months.

Traffic is the key culprit. Should people be expected to ditch their cars? What can Edinburgh expect from the new transport strategy? What pressure can we put on local government to take our health more seriously?

Please come along next Wednesday to hear more about the issues, and join in our discussions about what we can do to make the air in our city cleaner. We will hear about what progress is being made on air quality and crucially what needs to be done to have safe air in Scotland. There’ll be time for questions, discussion and planning what to do.
