What: Training Workshop: Air Pollution Research, Activism, and Education
Where: Bengaluru, India
When: February 17, 2017
Organizer: The Asthma Files [Link]
The Asthma Files is a collaborative, web-based project to draw together and explicate multiple perspectives on asthma – from different scientific disciplines, policy arenas, health care settings and communities where asthmatics live.
1st session (1.5 hours each) In this session, we will review recent research on patterns of air pollution in different places, and associated human health impacts. We will also introduce a collaborative social science study of air pollution governance in ten cities (including New York City, Philadelphia, Houston, Albany, Beijing, Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad, and Delhi) currently underway, as part of the larger Asthma Files research project.
2nd session (1.5 hours each) In this session, we will examine different kinds of air pollution activism, and an array of ways air pollution can be addressed in educational settings. Extending from the Asthma Files research project, the EcoEd project has been delivering air pollution education to students at all levels (from 1st standard through PhD) for the last five years.
