Air Quality stall - Community Fair 20th July 13:00 to 16:00

From the BA sustainability committee:

Come to the Community Fair on 20th July and help us spread the message about air quality!

The Barbican Association is having a stall at the Community Fair in Guildhall Yard on Sunday 20th July. We will be showcasing the work Barbican residents have done on the Citizen Science project on Air Quality. This follows from what we discussed at our last meeting in April where residents felt we should inform the wider residential/business community of the City about what we have learnt from our study - and join forces to encourage the City to take action to improve air quality.

Make a pledge to take action to improve air quality and take an air quality plant home!
To raise awareness, we thought we would ask people to make a pledge to improve air quality - such as walking or cycling to work more often, or using the car less, or writing a letter to the owners of coaches who leave their engines running, or reporting smoky boiler or taxi to the City's air quality team. In return for a pledge there will be free air quality-enhancing plants to take away.

The BA stall will also give out information on how to join the BA, what it does, how Crossrail and the Cultural Hub may affect our lives and those of our neighbours.

And please come along and say hello on the 20th. The Fair sounds fun. It starts at 1 pm. Entry if free. There is a swing band, Bollywood dance, Morris women, Latin American dance and loads of activities for children.

Please let me know if you can help out.

Thanks and best wishes
