Hotfoot it to The Mound, East George Street and the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh on Thursday 21 June for the start of a free two-day Summer Summit to mark National Clean Air Day.
REHIS will be heavily involved in the event with our Chief Executive Tom Bell’s keynote speech at the Air Quality, Public Health and Transport seminar on the afternoon of the first day.
National Clean Air Day itself is a nationwide awareness-raising day about air pollution aimed at helping making the air cleaner and healthier for everyone.
In Edinburgh, road closures will be in place and a host of fun events and stalls are planned, including e-bike demos, an urban garden space, mural wall painting, and lots more. The celebrations will kick off at 9.30am with a public procession, leaving from Mound Place and ending at St Andrew’s and St George’s West Church on George Street. The two-day Summer Summit has been organised by the Edinburgh City Council, working with Sustrans and Paths for All.
