Spring pollution meet is being held on the evening of Tuesday 14 March 2017 at 84 Long Lane, London, SE1 4AU

Click here for details.

The Spring meet will allow people from different boroughs to network and share ideas and also refine some of these ideas into a joint letter of asks.

The idea of mentoring is also being considered due to the number of people wanting to get involved in pollution monitoring and LSx is keen to facilitate this.

New groups will have the opportunity to be trained prior to the meet (17.30).

Please RSVP!  Contact Hannah on H.Gardiner@lsx.org.uk
