Is Cambridge Air Killing You?

A seminar sponsored by the Environment Committee, U3AC, at the Friends Meeting House, Jesus Lane, Friday 10 February 2017.

There were three speakers:

    • Dr Alison Greig, Director of Education for Sustainability at Anglia Ruskin University. Her current research interests lie in exploring the role of education in creating a more sustainable future. She has a background in physical geography and for a number of years worked on urban air pollution issues.
    • Heather Wallis, writer, lecturer, and film-maker. Her talk shares strategies for coping with problems in a difficult world, be they practical, emotional or issues concerning our health and wellbeing. With a positive attitude we can fight that ‘I can’t do anything about it feeling’.
    • Jo Dicks, Environmental Quality & Growth Manager at Cambridge City Council where he manages a team of Environmental Scientists, Engineers and Environmental Health Officers specialising in Energy Efficiency, Air Quality, Contaminated Land, Noise and Authorised Processes.
