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



The Future of Mobility, Air Quality, and Health

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. The 12th Annual Air Quality and Health Workshop took place in Vancouver on March 25, 2015 with an international panel of experts presenting ideas, research, and case studies challenging the status quo of mobility.
