This an important and timely event following in the wake of the third defeat of the UK Government in the High Court last year. In the third case brought by ClientEarth, the Court held that the Government’s failure to require action from 45 Local Authorities with illegal levels of air pollution in their areas was unlawful and ordered ministers to require Local Authorities to investigate and identify measures to tackle illegal levels of air pollution in 33 towns and cities as soon as possible. The challenges involved are not to be underestimated and this event brings together speakers from public health and legal backgrounds for an afternoon of discussion on the governance of air quality and the challenges ahead.
