What’s it about?
Air pollution has gained significant attention over the last couple of years, increasing on both the political agenda and more widely among the public conscience. While it is apparent that tackling air pollution requires a holistic response from policy makers, businesses and individuals, increasingly there is a significant role for technology and innovation. Whether it is how we monitor, mitigate or adapt to pollution, plan our cities, travel or move goods around, innovative business models, technologies and ideas pay an ever important role in tackling air pollution. This conference will outline some of the key challenges related to air pollution and explore a number of innovative solutions.

This event will include a Q&A session, and the chance to discuss challenges and solutions with other delegates and the organisations. The day has been designed purposefully to offer you the greatest opportunity to contribute your ideas and network with influential and knowledgeable people.
