I feel that there is nothing more important at the moment than taking care of our planet – Mother Earth. One of the most pressing issues is air pollution, which harms human health and the environment. Air pollution has been linked to nearly half a million premature deaths in Europe every year and is associated with social injustice. I am happy to use my legal experience to contribute to ClientEarth’s work ensuring cleaner and healthy air for all.
