About this event

Join us for a day of presentations, discussions and debates on the politics of air in the Heathrow neighbourhood. What are the local cultures of air use? How does the air shape our societies, and how democratically is it governed? How is the air fought over and by whom? What ethical questions around air use, noise and air pollution do planners face and how might we equip them to shape its future?

We will bring together perspectives from the audience, community representatives, industry professionals and academics across the arts, geography, environmental science and politics. The ambition is an event of international significance in which participants define challenges, generate strategic questions, and instigate new approaches to the struggle over air.

Keynote: Professor Derek McCormack, Professor of Cultural Geography, Oxford University. Author of Atmospheric Things. On The Allure of Elemental Envelopment. Duke University Press, 2018.
