GM Clean Air Zone: Helping the city to breathe?

Join Manchester Metropolitan's Future Economies Centre for Research and Knowledge Exchange as they explore the challenges and solutions to air quality in the UK’s cities.  


The Future Economies Seminar Series focuses on the Greater Manchester area but all small business owners are welcome to join the events. They are free of charge to attend. Most of the seminars are held in person, in Manchester city centre, but December's session will be held online.


Please register via our Eventbrite page here for the webinar link.


About this seminar:


On 30 May 2022, Greater Manchester will introduce a GM-wide Clean Air Zone to improve air quality across the city region.


The levels of pollution in the city region breach legal requirements and to remedy this, this policy will implement daily charges on the owners of any commercial vehicles that do not meet the latest emissions standards.


Awareness of this policy is low, as is awareness of schemes that will be introduced to provide financial support to businesses.


In this seminar, we'll provide an overview of the challenges that the city must face as well as the rollout of the scheme. It will also provide a forum for businesses, policymakers and academics to discuss the problems and solutions to air quality in the UK’s cities.


Participants:


  • Chris Fletcher, Director of Policy of Communications, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce
  • Christian Spence, Head of Economic Data & Analytics, Future Economies Research Centre, Manchester Metropolitan University
  • Megan Black, Head of Logistics & Environment, Transport for Greater Manchester
  • Mark Currie, Chief Executive, Mantra Learning

We're hosting this event online, via Microsoft Teams. Once you've registered for your free ticket (sign up here), we'll send you the link so that you can join the seminar online.
