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.

The event is entitled: "If air pollution is poisoning us, just how bad is it and what can we do?"
