A NEW immersive room has opened at Southport Eco Centre to give information about climate change and green energy.

The new facility was opened by council Chief Executive Dwayne Johnson and fellow council members on Thursday, June 23.

The immersive room is an interactive experience to look at how various factors impact negatively on air quality, both for on people and the environment.

The room also looks at how people can make small changes to their own lifestyles to help improve it.

The room will be used as part of the council's education programme, with 4,000 schoolchildren a year being able to view the new experience.

There are also plans to open the room up for the general public as part of themed community open days in the coming months.

Funding for the room has come from the DEFRA Air Quality Grant fund to help in the fight against air pollution.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing said: “I am delighted that Sefton has been awarded this money to educate young people about the issue of air quality and its impact on society."
