Air pollution: Local contexts, universal effects
Air pollution represents a global problem, contributing to chronic illness and mortality. This seminar will examine the cultural drivers of increased air pollution and state and community-based responses to the problem.
Bonn Side Event: The Pathway to the Paris Targets Matters
This side event explores the consequences delaying near term climate action will have on the development aspirations of countries, and the benefits of following a path toward the long-term Paris targets that limits the rate of increase of global warming, reduces air pollution impacts on human health and avoids losses to agricultural productivity.
A breath of fresh air: sharing air quality knowledge across continents

Pint of Science: Does behaviour stick to a person or a place?
We will explore 'pro-environmental behaviour' messages and the things that enable us or make it difficult at home and at work to cycle, recycle, and save energy. Using some hands-on exercises we'll reflect individually whether our behaviour is place-related or whether we do things irrelevant of where we are, leading to some insights on how to improve behaviour change campaigns.
Public Seminar: What are the true health costs of air pollution?
This seminar provides a rare opportunity to listen to Nick Muller, an Associate Professor of Economics at Middlebury College (USA) and a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. His research focuses on the valuation of damages from pollution and the incorporation of such damages into environmental accounting systems and market-based policy designs.
