Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)
The growing situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the UK is presenting unprecedented challenges for individuals, companies and organisations alike. As a responsible organisation, the IAQM’s primary concern is for the safety of its attendees, members, speakers, exhibitors and staff. We are therefore following the advice of the UK Government to ‘avoid social contact with others and stop non-essential travel to fight Coronavirus’ and as a result, all face-to-face events and workshops for the next few weeks will be postponed.
Where possible we will deliver events and workshops via online platforms. Please refer to the individual event page for further details around each of our events.
We will honour all bookings made for events to date and transfer these to the new event date, details of which will be circulated to you in due course.
We thank you for your support during this time.

The adverse impacts of air quality upon biodiversity has been long recognised in the peer review literature dating back to the 1970s however, it is only in the last few years that the effects of atmospheric nitrogen deposition have been taken serious by ecological practitioners. Robust assessment of air quality issues has been forced up the agenda by legal challenge such as the now infamous ‘Ashdown Forest’ case and the now equally notorious ‘Dutch’ case. Despite these landmark decisions, there…Find out more »
