On Sunday August 24th, Birmingham Friends Of The Earth were invited to a service at Birmingham Cathedral to discuss ‘Let’s Get Moving’ and the issues around air pollution that we face.

‘Let’s Get Moving’ is calling on Birmingham City Council to invest £10 per person per year in active transport for ten years as a way to fight air pollution. We have been lucky enough to form some alliances in the community to support the fight against air pollution, and that was how the invitation to speak to the congregation at the Cathedral came about.

We went along to the service and Rachel was invited to the altar to answer some questions about ‘Let’s Get Moving’. The response from the members of the church was brilliant, with plenty of the congregation signing our action cards and stayed after the service to talk to Rachel and her Lungs (Libby and Myself).
