Good air quality is essential for our health and a good quality of life, but poor air quality can often go undetected. The workshop will focus on improving the way information on air quality is presented at a local level and how this is accessed by members of the public through the new online tool being developed.

The workshop is being held at Stirling Court Hotel within the Stirling University Campus on 10 November between 10am – 1.30pm, and is free to attend, however spaces will be limited. Members of the public should register at Eventbrite to book their place. A buffet- style lunch will also be provided at the end of the session.

Colin Gillespie, Principal Air Scientist at SEPA, said:

We’re really keen to get direct feedback from the public on how our new online tool can work for them and how they want the air quality information presented. We can only do this by talking to those people who will use the tool.”
