Breathing Spaces: into 2020

We’ve had our final Clean Air Cafe of 2019. Together we made a timeline of all the events, and activities that have happened in St Denys throughout our Breathing Spaces year. And what a year it has been! (Click on the thumbnail images for a closer look!)

To date, people have been saying they want air quality conversation and action within the St Denys and Southampton community to continue. They want to explore more of the air quality data and science and understand the most effective measures to reduce pollution. They have a whole range of ideas for reducing traffic and sources of pollution. They love the community action that has been happening and want more chances to get involve in positive ways such as through gardening and creative ways to share pollution and community messages. They want to work together towards healthier, less polluted streets.

Our independent evaluator, Naomi Jones, will be assessing everyone’s feedback on the project and we’ll be reporting back in early 2020.

If you’d still like to get involved in community projects, below are just a few of the ways you can take part. Priory Road North will be hosting an Open Streets event on Sat 7 Dec 5-7pm, which the Breathing Spaces community are welcome to join.

We’re also excited to be offering the chance to take some St Denys residents on a study trip to Waltham Forest to see the Mini Holland scheme, in the New Year. Read more here, and do let us know if you want to join in.
