CLEAN AIR: WOMEN’S WORK?

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

To celebrate International Women’s Day, the Foundation convened a webinar, bringing together some of the top names in air pollution campaigning; Dr Maria Neira, Director of Public Health, Environment and Social Determinants of Health Department at the World Health Organisation; Baroness Jenny Jones, a Green Party peer, who has introduced Ella’s Law, the Clean Air Human Rights Bill to the House of Lords; Bhavrine Khandari, who co-founded Warrior Moms, a collection of mothers from all over India fighting air pollution. They joined Rosamund in a panel chaired by Penny Hose to discuss whether clean air campaigning is women’s work. Watch the webinar here.

ART & AIR POLLUTION

The Foundation has collaborated with two artists to highlight the link between air pollution and human health, as part of We Are Lewisham. The exhibition of paintings by Sarah Stirk and Gina Allen is open for two weeks this summer, as part of the Mayor's London Borough of Culture 2022 and will also host a day of children's talks.

THE FOUNDATION AT COP26

THE FOUNDATION AT COP26

In October 2021, Rosamund led a delegation of mothers at COP26, to deliver a letter to Alok Sharma, the President of COP. The letter was addressed to Heads of State and delegates of the climate event, and was signed by nearly 500 groups from 44 countries. It was one of the biggest mobilisations of parents on any issue ever.
