Hirra Khan Adeogun confirmed as final speaker at the National Air Quality Conference

We are delighted to be able to announce that the final speaker confirmed for the National Air Quality Conference at Lords on 8th November is Hirra Khan Adeogun, co-director (campaigns & impact) at Possible.

Hirra was the campaign lead of the landmark Car Free Megacities programme, a two-year project across London, New York and Paris to reimagine our cities as places where private cars become obsolete, and to dramatically raise policy and public support for urban car reduction.

You might have seen her on Good Morning Britain last week, celebrating the implementation of 20mph speed limits on urban Welsh roads.

Before all this, Hirra managed events for Amnesty International UK, extensively explored British Muslim identities at New Horizons in British Islam, and used evidence and insight around the experiences of underrepresented people to drive positive change. She is passionate about designing sustainable futures that centre social justice, human rights and community cohesion.

Hirra is proud of her east London roots – she still lives there with her husband – and outside of her day job, she tries to make it better for local communities as Trustee of the Women’s Environmental Network (Wen) and as Vice-Chair of her tenants’ and residents’ association.

The full list of speakers is below. Next week we will announce who will be joining us for our ever-popular panel discussion.

  • Dr Gary Fuller, UK Clean Air Champion, Imperial College London
  • Zack Polanski, Deputy Leader of the Green Party
  • Angela Halliwell, Head of Carbon and Environmental Sustainability at National Highways
  • Stephen Inch, Air Quality Programme Lead at National Highways
  • Quentin Wilson, One of the UK’s best-known motoring faces and an EV campaigner
  • Cllr Clyde Loakes, Deputy Leader, Waltham Forest Council
