Laura Fatah – Global Acton Plan

Laura is a clean air campaigner with a skill for strategic influence. Since passing the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) she has held a range of public policy roles; from volunteering for Liberty, to working at a cross-party think tank and providing the Secretariat for an APPG. Laura enjoys engaging with passionate people who can bring diverse perspectives to the table to inform, test, and co-develop policy solutions that work for all levels of society. At Global Action Plan, Laura is leading a new partnership with Health Equals; where she has developed a Clean Air Advisory Group uniting voices from across the third sector to seek clean air manifesto commitments from the main political parties. Laura would like to see greater ambition on clean air from policy makers, and notes that the UK is at risk of slipping behind on air quality and the opportunities it brings for innovation. Laura influences policy by highlighting the link between pollution and public health, and showing how practical solutions can be delivered.

Louise Thomas – AirAware

Louise has had an interest in air quality in her local area of Brixton since 2019 and campaigned for a school street at her daughter’s primary school.  She is now involved in the Breathe London programme of community monitoring, aiming to establish a monitoring node in the heart of Brixton.  Alongside this, she has established a blog: to raise awareness. By the time of the conference she will have left her role in the civil service and joined the Zinc venture programme, aiming to establish a business to tackle air pollution.
