October 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Covid-19 lockdowns briefly showed us a world that could be: one with improved outdoor air quality thanks to reduced traffic and energy production. At the same time, the pandemic brought renewed attention to the under-examined issue of indoor air pollution. We must now seize this moment to address one of the biggest threats to the climate and to global human health. This event will include leaders from academia, government, and the private sector discussing what must be done in order to reduce air pollution and tackle climate change.
