We kick off 2020 with Planet Pod’s fourth episode in collaboration with the Grantham Institute which looks at the impact of travel and transport on climate change and our ability to achieve a net zero carbon economy by 2050. Amanda is joined by experts Dr Audrey de Nazelle and Dr Mark Stettler. We look at the intersection between environmental sciences, health behaviour, transportation, air quality and urban planning and consider what’s the right route to get us to a net zero future.
Planet Pod discusses Air Quality with Elle McCall from Hubbub, Kings College London researcher Andrew Grieve and private banker Emily Bernstein from Investec
Elle McAll is a Creative Partner at environmental charity Hubbub UK. She has a track-record of designing and delivering innovative, award-winning sustainability initiatives. She’s currently leading the development of the ‘Air We Share’, a transformative engagement campaign to cut Londoner’s exposure to poor air quality.

Prior to Investec, Emily spent seven years working as a consultant for the youth homeless charity, Centrepoint with a focus on bringing on board high profile celebrities, philanthropists as well as producing fundraising events and creating new fundraising initiatives. In Emily’s spare time, she loves to run marathons and is a champion for sustainability, having recently been an ambassador for the Air We Share campaign.
Andrew Grieve is a Senior Air Quality Analyst at the School of Population , Health and Environmental Science at Kings College London. After suffering from asthma as a child, Andrew studied Environmental Science and Information technology at Stirling University with a focus on air pollution.
Andrew joined the monitoring team at King’s in 2005, and has combined his twin passions of air quality and digital technology to pioneer many of the group’s air quality apps and communications platforms such as the London Air, City Air, Lewisham Air apps, helping to bring the public and those responsible for air quality management closer together.
