Fighting For Air, an air pollution documentary presented by Dr Xand van Tulleken, will be shown on BBC2 on Wednesday 10 January 2018 at 9pm.
Recorded with the help of local enthusiasts and volunteers in December 2017 for Kings Heath Clean Air Day, the programme investigates:
- how communities and experts in pollution science can work together to reduce air pollution on the High Street on a single day
- the effect of air pollution on the human body after being exposed to a typical city street
Join Dr Xand van Tulleken and residents this Friday, 1 December 2017 for Kings Heath’s Clean Air Day – a BBC experiment to see if we can reduce air pollution on the High Street.
Amazing Productions, a production company from London, are making a documentary for BBC2 about air pollution in the UK. Part of their enquiry focuses on Kings Heath, and considers what can be done to reduce traffic and emissions causing air pollution on the High Street.
A public meeting to gather views from residents and business owners on how to tackle air quality and traffic on Kings Heath High Street takes place on:
Tuesday, 24 October 2017
6pm to 8.30pm
All Saints Centre, 2 Vicarage Road, Kings Heath, B14 7RA
The meeting will be filmed.
Birmingham City Council (BCC) wants to know whether air quality is important to you. In order to find out what residents think, BCC have launched an online survey:
The survey is already open but will close on 3 April 2017.
The questionnaire is reasonably short – it should take less than 10 minutes to complete but it’s important that as many residents as possible complete it.
