News from Sustrans, the national transport charity
We are providing information for Birmingham City Council with regard to air pollution in the city. We are currently working with communities across Birmingham to raise awareness of air pollution and its health risks.
We have produced a survey for faith groups across Birmingham to gain an idea of people’s travel habits. This survey is also a chance for people to have their say about how air pollution affects them, changes they would like to see and their thoughts on any measures taken.
Everyone who fills in the survey will be entered into a prize draw to win a free bike. The closing date is May 31.
In addition to the survey we are also offering free training sessions to faith and community groups in Birmingham. These sessions cover types of air pollution, where they come from and the health problems associated with them.
One hour sessions can be delivered to parishioners over Zoom or Teams. They are relatively informal, and have been well received so far.
If you are interested please contact Sylvia Barnett, who runs the free training sessions, via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
