CLAHRC research investigating the impact of low emission zones on children’s physical activity and health has been featured on the BBC News
CLAHRC North Thames, in collaboration with three other CLAHRCs and a number of other research bodies, is evaluating the effects of London’s new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) on children’s physical health and activity.
Our work is an offshoot of the CHILL (Children’s Health in London and Luton) study investigating the impact of pollution on children’s lungs. We are using the data created by CHILL to focus specifically on the impacts on children’s physical activity and health. CHILL featured on BBC News on January 16th.
Watch a clip below to see how school children are recording the effects of pollution on their lungs.
Professor Chris Griffiths, Chief Investigator for our work and part of the CHILL study is interviewed in the clip
