The ReIGNITE Talks
Clearing the Air: Pollution, Transportation & Inequality
The ReIGNITE Talks is a webinar series that’s re-thinking and re-imagining our planet. Join us each month, as Environmental Defence aims to make sense of the world from an environmental perspective. We’ll hear from thought-leaders and change-makers on topics ranging from pollution, to health, to climate change - all while finding real-world solutions towards a sustainable future.
In this first episode, we’ll explore not only how vehicle pollution harms our health, but particularly harms people living near major roads and highways. It is one of many reasons that low-income, racialized and marginalized communities have less access to clean air. Join Darnel Harris from Our Greenway Conservancy and Sabat Ismail, member of Transportation Equity Toronto, as they share examples of community-led solutions for equitable access to transportation in Toronto neighbourhoods that are most impacted by traffic pollution.
