Air Quality Monitoring Walk in Bootle with Dr Ivan Gee
Responding to interests in the local environment that have arisen during A Field of Flax, we’re convening a session to explore how to put knowledge in the hands of those directly impacted by local environmental issues, such the high air pollution levels in Bootle.
In collaboration with Dr Ivan Gee, Senior Lecturer in Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University we’ll take a collective walk around Bootle with air quality monitors. Together we’ll learn how to monitor and understand air quality in the local area, which regularly breaches legal limits and exceeds PM10 & NO2 levels, and what can be done to improve it.
If you would like to join us, please email email@example.com to let us know you are coming along and so we can send over any extra details.
