Indoor Air Quality Policy Think-In


This online conversation will convene a mixed selection of experts, policymakers, and stakeholders to discuss policy means to address indoor air pollution. 

Before the dissolution of Parliament, Policy Connect supported the All-Party Groups on Health and Carbon Monoxide, which jointly supported a programme of advocacy, events, and awareness-raising around indoor air quality. 

Identified as an urgent public health priority by England’s Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty, indoor air pollution remains a pervasive but poorly addressed determinant of health.  

Progress in improving indoor air quality is hindered by a lack of a coherent government strategy on indoor air quality. Local authorities and charities are increasingly focussing on indoor air quality but lack appropriate guidance and support. 

This conversation will uncover priority actions for the next government to take forward to address air pollution at home, and how Policy Connect and supporting stakeholders can ensure indoor air quality becomes a priority in government. 

The session will feature insights from:

  • Gaelan Komen, Policy Connect
  • Simon Jones, Air Quality Matters podcast
  • Baroness Natalie Bennett
  • Natasha Feiner, Impact on Urban Health
  • Professor Sarah West, Stockholm Environment Institute
  • Dr Douglas Booker, Leeds University
