Many thanks to all who attended our air pollution event on Sunday and contributed to a lively and constructive debate. Thanks to Professor Kelly and Jo Mortensen for talking, and also to Cllr Julian Bell and Rupa Huq MP, our keynote guests. Professor Kelly’s talk is available here for you to read and share with anyone who might be interested.
We have also distilled your ideas and contributions into a strategy document which you can read below. We have tried to keep it as action-oriented as possible. Our plan is to share this with EBC and the Mayor of London as part of his consultation.
If you have any further ideas, feedback or observations, or if you would like to participate more actively in taking these ideas forward, do let us know in the usual way via email@example.com
Finally, please note that you can contribute directly to the Mayor’s consultation here

With air pollution becoming an increasing concern for many Londoners, Ealing Transition Initiative is organising a public event focused on this topic, with an emphasis on the facts and what we can do to take practical action ourselves.
We are delighted to have Professor Frank Kelly of King’s College, London as our keynote speaker. Frank and his team are the independent group who run the air quality monitoring system throughout London and are the leading source of information on both air quality and consequences.
We wish to raise awareness about the serious problem of air pollution and its impacts on public health, particularly that of children, and to enable local people to participate directly in thinking and discussing the issues and to participate in creating solutions alongside leaders in the local authority.
We are very pleased that Councillor Julian Bell, Leader of Ealing Council, Jo Mortensen, Ealing’s Sustainability Manager, and Virendra Sharma and Rupa Huq, our local MPs, have agreed to attend to share their ideas and plans for improvement.
St Mary’s Church, St Mary’s Road, Ealing W5 5RH.
