Poor air quality in the UK is found to reduce life expectancy by up to 8 months, contributing to 40,000 early deaths a year and costing the NHS up to £20 billion a year. Air pollution levels, specifically Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), have continued to exceed EU and UK standards for a number of roads in Brighton. In a city the size of Brighton and Hove this air pollution is contributing to 200 people dying prematurely a year. It is a major public health emergency.

Breathe In Brighton is an event run by Argyll Environmental and Brighton Peace and Environment Centre. The aim of the event is to increase awareness of the air pollution in Brighton with the help of a number of key speakers. We hope to inform the local community and decision makers of the adverse health and environment effects associated with air pollution in Brighton and the potential solutions in which we can reduce it.

Speakers

  • Keith Taylor (MEP)
  • Alan Andrews (ClientEarth)
  • Dr. Kevin Wyche (UoB)
  • Paul Nicholls (B&H City Council)

This event will be held on Thursday 21st September at 7pm at Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD
