The 2014 Upwind Downwind Conference: Built Environment - Foundation for Cleaner Air will take place on Monday February 24th, 2014 at the Sheraton hotel in downtown Hamilton. The 2014 theme of built environment will explore how the built environment and transportation can improve air quality, address climate change and improve local health.

 

We have two plenary streams in the afternoon - one focussed on air quality management and land use planning, the second is focussed on transportation and includes a workshop component.
