Clean Air Day

Clean Air Day

Thu, June 17, 2021 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM BST Eventbrite

As part of Clean Air Day 2021, we’ll be hosting an event around engaging and involving the wider public in clean air research. Along with our partner networks, we ask how the research community can ‘translate’ air quality science into messaging, media stories and social media campaigns that cut through to the public, and enable them to join the conversation.

Clean Air Day is focused on improving public understanding of air pollution and building awareness of how air pollution impacts our health. This event is organised jointly by the the six SPF-Clean Air funded air quality networks.

The event will be hosted by Prof Cath Noakes, Professor of Environmental Engineering for Buildings at the University of Leeds.

Speakers as follows:

  • Charlotte Zamboni, Marketing Director, Global Action Plan: Playing on the positive  – Turning clean air research into compelling communications
  • Lukasz Walasek, University of Warwick: How do we turn communications into action? Insights from behavioural science.
  • Mike Morrison, Michigan State University: How to ‘speed up’ science and make it bitesize and user friendly.

There will be plenty of time for discussion and to explore ideas with the panel.
