Weston Roundtable: Air Pollution and Sustainable Cities

James Schauer, professor in the College of Engineering and a GHI Advisory member, presents “Air Pollution and Sustainable Cities: Implications for Transportation, Energy, Buildings and Industry.” Throughout the world, air pollution is a leading contributor to the burden of disease and has large societal and economic costs. Although the effects of air pollution on health are well established, there is considerable need to better map how specific controls of air pollution sources can lead to improvements in public health. The seminar will address the impacts of air pollution, and how pathways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the livability of cities should be managed to assure reductions in air pollution and realize large co-benefits to human health.

Weston Roundtable lectures are free and open to the public.
