Air Quotes film screening from the Sustainability Working Group at the MRC Centre for Environment and Health

On Wednesday 11th October, the Sustainability Working Group at the MRC (Medical Research Council) Centre for Environment and Health along with WellHome and Breathe London from Imperial College London hosted a free community film screening of Air Quotes!

Originally commissioned to extend a dialogue around net-zero climate policies that researchers in Imperial College London’s School of Public Health are modelling, Air Quotes cuts between a group of inner-city London teens who are regularly exposed to toxic levels of air pollution, and members of a school Eco Committee in Helensburgh, Scotland, to explore young people’s views on climate justice and the uneven impacts of air pollution and ‘net-zero’ climate policies. The evening brought with it lively, thought-provoking discussion between youth members, air pollution activists and Imperial researchers, staff and students.
