Clean Air Champions - "Addressing the Challenge of the Indoor/Outdoor Continuum"

Project overview

Air pollution has long been known to damage health and the environment, with recent research adding considerably to the knowledge base on how this occurs and why. However, air pollution can be thought of as a wicked problem where no single solution will create the desired reductions necessary to meet targets based on health set by the WHO.
The Clean Air Champion(s) roles are to help drive forward new research into air pollution in relation to adverse health and effects on the wider environment.
