The Future of Mobility, Air Quality, and Health

12th Annual Air Quality and Health Workshop - March 25, 2015

The movement of people and goods around cities, countries, and the planet impacts the health of populations via air pollution, physical activity, climate forcing and other pathways. New ideas and new technologies in transportation have the potential to bring about a paradigm shift over the coming decades, which could improve health at the global scale. This workshop will present ideas, research, and case studies from international experts who are challenging the status quo of mobility. Participants will be inspired to think about the possibilities while being challenged to consider what it would take to implement them.
