different people's exposure to air pollution in their daily
lives. The event will also be a forum for open discussion
with researchers. They want to talk to local people about
what they know about air pollution, what they need to know
and what methods of communication would be helpful to them.
The input from local people is essential to develop the work
further as it will be based on the needs of the local
population. Refreshments provided and travel expenses
