Air Quality, Climate Change and the Anthropocene

Feb 21st and Feb 22nd, 2016 

 

The 2016 Upwind Downwind Conference: Air Quality, Climate Change and the Anthropocene will take place on Monday February 22nd, 2016 at the Sheraton hotel in downtown Hamilton. The Anthropocene – Age of Man – is the slice of Earth’s history during which people and human activities started to have a significant global impact on Earth’s ecosystems.

 

The 2016 conference will explore topics such as climate change and health impacts, the regional and local economic impacts of climate action, innovative and citizen focussed forms of local air monitoring, airshed modelling of cities, and local sustainable forms of transportation. 

 

There are two plenary streams in the afternoon - one focussed on innovative actions on improving air quality management in Hamilton and outcomes, the second is focussed on transboundary and regional actions including modelling for airshed management and the economic impacts of local climate actions.

 

Registration is now open and details can be found at: http://www.cleanair.hamilton.ca/default.asp?id=45
