This is an in depth examination of the causes, mechanisms and impacts of air pollution. What is polluting our air, why, and how does it affect us? Who is responsible and when and where are people worst affected?
Climate Acceptance Studios brings together people from all walks of life to communicate the climate and nature crisis.

That’s why in these webinars you will hear from teenage campaigners like Choked Up, and artists like Michael Pinsky, as well leading experts like Professor Stephen Holgate.

The series has been produced by Climate Acceptance Studios in partnership with the Institute of Health Equity.
