Seeing through the fog: Air pollution facts

Essential reading

Campaign aim

Toxic air in Bristol is linked to 300 deaths a year. It’s bad for our health, bad for local ecosystems and it hits inner-city neighbourhoods hardest. The council are currently working on their much-delayed Clean Air Plan, due at the end of 2019.

This Bristol Cable campaign is pushing for significant action on air pollution from the council, and sharing the stories Bristolians need to hold the council to account. Tune in for the facts, latest developments, ideas for solutions and stories of the citizens already fighting for fair air.
