‘Transition Liverpool Gathering 2019
Air pollution is something which affects each and every one of us. Together, we can raise the profile of the effects of air pollution has on our health and what we can do about it.
Join us on Clean Air Day as we bring together stakeholders from Liverpool and the wider region to discuss how clinicians, members of the public and stakeholders can work together to improve the quality of the air we all breathe.
The event will be opened by the Mayor of Liverpool (Joe Anderson OBE) followed by a panel discussion including Professor Stephen Holgate (Royal College of Physicians’ special adviser on air quality), Larissa Lockwood (head of health and air quality at global action plan) and Colleen Martin (Assistant Director- Supporting Communities at Liverpool City Council).
The panel discussion will be followed by informal discussions between participants on the key actions we can all take. We’ll also be joined by members of the British Lung Foundation’s & Client Earth’s Clean Air Parents’ Network.
This event will seek to create a range of actions that together will help improve air quality in Liverpool.
*Light refreshments will be provided*

Join the Global 24 Hour Moratorium on the use of Fossil Fuels!
The guidelines for Zero Emissions day are simple:
- Don’t use or burn oil, gas or coal.
- Minimise, or ideally eliminate your use of electricity generated by fossil fuels.
- Do your best, have fun and enjoy the day!
It is up to us to take care of our planet at this point. When you’re driving something this large, you have to stop every now and then and reflect on what’s working and what is not working to get you where you really want to be!
Zero Emissions Day provides just that opportunity to benefit everything and everyone on our planet.
