But it doesn't have to be like this. So let's change it!
All front line campaigners, who will be putting the air pollution argument through the wringer and present some uncomfortable truths. What do we really need to stop doing to halt this toxic hurricane? And what can we do instead to repair the damage and reverse polarity?
Email us your questions in advance of the event, or just speak up on the night and let's make sure we quiz our impressive panel of experts to the max!
Every year an estimated 9500 Londoners die prematurely from air pollution related conditions. That's one death every 55 minutes. A shocking statistic.
That's 70 times more than deaths from knife crime or traffic accidents over the same period.
Why are we failing so miserably to detox the air that we all breathe, 20 times a minute, 24/7?
Whatever your views, even if you treasure your 4 x 4 gas guzzler or your pretty wood burning stove, we need to talk about air! So come along and add your voice to the debate.
Email any questions to email@example.com or just bring them along on the night.
