2015 National Air Pollution Summit

The National Air Pollution Summit is an opportunity for clean air advocates, community groups and government representatives to share experiences, sharpen the analysis of the issues and plan for cooperative action. We warmly invite you and your organisation to participate.

In air pollution hotspots around Australia, communities are suffering the brunt of air pollution that is poorly regulated and increasing year by year. 

Environment ministers are expected to adopt new standards this December. But with polluters resisting regulation and stricter standards, what are the prospects for decisive action and where are the key opportunities for non-government groups’ influence?

The National Air Pollution Summit will include panels and small group discussions on:

 - the health impacts of air pollution
 - community campaigns in pollution-affected areas
 - air pollution laws and policies, including the proposed new standards for particle pollution
 - the case for a national Air Pollution Act and a regulator to enforce it

Registration: $50 (government, industry or large NGOs) or $25 (individuals or small NGOs)

Confirmed speakers include:

 - Dr Ben Ewald - Doctors for the Environment Australia
 - Fiona Armstrong - Climate and Health Alliance
 - Clare Walter - Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre
 - Dr Dorothy Robinson - Australian Air Quality Group
 - Michael Kane - Clean Air Queensland
 - Patricia Julien - Mackay Conservation Group
 - Dr. James Whelan - Environmental Justice Australia
 - Philip Hill - Environmental Justice Australia

A limited number of travel subsidies are available for self-funding interstate participants. Billeting can also be arranged on request. For enquiries please contact admin@envirojustice.org.au or 03) 8341 3100
