ICOS Newsletter pollution

  1. 1. Newsletter, 13.01.2015 International Community Organisation of Sunderland We work to improve the quality of life of minority ethnic groups in the North East England. We want to change their negative im- age in media, political debates as well as how they are seen by local people. We want our community to live better and easier on a daily basis. We also work to improve cooperation between the different communities. We co-run “The Sustainable Sunder- land Programme” which aims at understanding how much the way we live our daily lives impact on the environment, and the relationship between it and our quality of life and what we spend for it. We are thinking about what we can do to help our environment and improve our quality of life at the same time. Pollution is a plague in a lot of countries and because of this, we must be careful in our everyday life if we want to be healthy.
