Event description

Description

Air pollution across the world is responsible for 6.5m premature deaths a year. City dwellers are particularly at risk: London for example hit its toxic air limit for 2018 by the end of January and the UK government has been mired in legal battles with campaigners over nitrogen dioxide levels. The issue is set to shoot to the top of the global public health agenda in May as the UN and the World Health Organization step up their BreatheLife campaign on urban air quality.

But as evidence of pollution’s toll on health grows, so does public awareness, from the work of King's College London on the capital's environment to groups such as the UK Health Alliance on Climate Change, as you can hear in our FT Health podcast. The business world too is adapting, developing more efficient car engines, greener fuels and more environmentally-friendly processes. But how much more needs to be done?

Join us at FT Engage for an evening of discussion with a panel of experts from industry, policy and the health community and meet FT journalists, including Science Editor Clive Cookson; Andrew Jack and Darren Dodd from FT Health; and Leslie Hook, our new Environment and Clean Energy Correspondent.

Doors open at 6:00pm with welcome drinks. The conversation will begin at 6:30pm, followed by a Q&A and drinks until 8:30pm.
