The Impact of Air Pollution on Children's Health - Clean Air for Brent meeting November 12th

From Clear Air for Brent

As you hopefully know by now we are holding an exciting public meeting at Queens Park Community School on Tuesday 12th November 7.30-9.30pm with a really strong variety of speakers.  It is also our AGM and we are inviting members to stand for the steering group. 
There is a particular vacancy for someone who would like to up our social media profile, though we would love to hear from anyone who feels they might have something to offer the group, taking us forward or in different directions. Your energy and enthusiasm will be appreciated. We meet five or six times through the year with email conversations between the meetings. If you would like to stand please  email as soon as possible and one of us will be in touch to find out what your strengths and interests are.

In the meantime if you are coming to the meeting but have not yet signed up on Eventbrite please do here - it really helps us to know what the numbers will be.  A flyer with all the information is also attached

Please do pass this on to your network groups - all are very welcome.

At the meeting we are proud to present some great speakers who will bring a wealth of knowledge and suggest action to be taken:

Dr Ian Mudway of King’s College, London, a leading expert on air pollution and its impact on health and Rosamund Kissi-Debrah, the mother of Ella Roberta, who died aged 9 in 2013 after a severe asthma attack, whilst living next to the South Circular road.  The pathologist who carried out her post mortem said it was “one of the worst cases of asthma ever recorded in the UK”. Rosamund is now a passionate campaigner against air pollution and in May 2019 her daughter’s inquest was re-opened.  We will also hear from Cllr Thomas Stephens who chairs Brent Council's Air Quality Scrutiny Task Group and Humphrey Milles, a local resident who has been driving a national ad campaign on awareness of pollution issues.

See you on the 12th!
