The challenges of measuring and understanding air quality will be discussed on this very special annual Clean Air Day. The problems and the need for solutions, not only on a local, but also on a global basis, will be considered.
This event will also be streamed as a webinar - attendees can choose to attend in person or by webinar.
The event is jointly organised by BCS Green IT, SG, BCS Hampshire Branch, BCS Dorset Branch and Solent University to celebrate International Clean Air Day.
