2019 Webinar Series

Air Pollution Mitigation using Passive Techniques in the Built Environment: Sharing International Best Practice

This webinar series aims to bring together global experts to participate in a community forum for the dissemination of information relating to best practice around passive mitigation of air pollution in the built environment. Experts will provide their unique experiences relating to how they have gathered evidence relating to these passive techniques for air pollution mitigation, such as green infrastructure, solid barriers and urban design. They have done so in a range of methods: from real-world monitoring assessments to wind-tunnel experiments studies and theoretical simulations at micro- and macro-scales. A range of external air pollution specialists will also provide external contributions to the community of researchers working in the area of passive mitigation techniques to air pollution.

The series will take place across eight sessions in 2019 (four in Spring/Summer and four in Autumn/Winter), through monthly online presentations and interactive discussion sessions with international speakers from around the world. Each webinar will include two speakers who are experts in the field, coming from backgrounds of research, practice and governance. The discussions following these presentations will help identify remaining gaps in knowledge and will guide further research priorities to maximise the impact of these solutions. The outputs from the webinar series will help inform those implementing passive techniques for air pollution mitigation in the built environment of best practice on an international stage, which can support the response to protecting our urban inhabitants.
