Take a look at events we have held over the years.
The RECLAIM network will be a 'one stop shop’ for towns and cities to find the information and support people need to install green and blue infrastructure in communities and put people in touch with others with similar experiences.
This welcome event held on Friday 6 May, introduced the network and the opportunities available through it over the course of its lifetime.
The in-home air quality across 12 global cities (PDF) and passive indoor air pollution control in ventilation systems (PDF) talks were the seventh in the Global Indoor Air Quality and Respiratory Infection webinar series, held on 25 March 2022 with guest speakers Professor Prashant Kumar and Professor Aonghus McNabola.
The indoor air quality in kitchens of low income homes in Cairo (PDF) and indoor aerosol exposure in Sulaimani city, Kurdistan-Iraq (PDF) talks were the sixth in the Global Indoor Air Quality and Respiratory Infection webinar series, held on 18 February 2022 with guest speakers Professor Ahmed El-Gandy, Professor Khalid Omer and Dr Kosar Hama Aziz.
The mitigating strategies of Covid-19 infection transmission indoors (PDF) and current status and challenges of air quality monitoring in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania (PDF) talks were the fifth in the Global Indoor Air Quality and Respiratory Infection webinar series, held on 14 January 2022 with guest speakers Professor Shi-Jie Cao and Dr Vera Ngowi.
The state of indoor air pollution and its health effect in Ethiopia (PDF) and Indoor air quality: Awareness, health impact, and scientific mitigation techniques across Africa (PDF) talks were the fourth in the Global Indoor Air Quality and Respiratory Infection webinar series, held on 17 December 2021 with guest speakers Professor Araya Asfaw, Dr Francis Olawale Abulude and Dr Adedeji A. Adelodun.
The indoor air quality management in microenvironments (PDF) and indoor air quality and associated health impacts in Dhaka Bangladesh (PDF) talks were the third in the Global Indoor Air Quality and Respiratory Infection webinar series, held on 19 November 2021 with guest speakers Professor Shiva Nagendra and Professor Abdus Salam.
The monitoring indoor air quality in Colombia (PDF) and air quality in the microenvironment of Schools in the largest megacity in South America (PDF) talks were the second in the Global Indoor Air Quality and Respiratory Infection webinar series, held on 29 October 2021 with guest speakers Professor Yris Olaya and Professor Maria de Fátima Andrade.
PhD student Ashish Sharma from our Centre presented a webinar on mitigating air pollution exposure to the young children through the Institution of Environmental Sciences on Wednesday 20 October 2021.
The indoor air: from science to policy (PDF) talk was the first in the Global Indoor Air Quality and Respiratory Infection webinar series, held on 13 October 2021 with guest speaker Distinguished Professor Lidia Morawska.
The monthly webinar series was part of the EPSRC/Surrey supported Official Development Assistance (ODA) project “Knowledge transfer and practical application of research on indoor air quality (KTP-IAQ)”. It brought together speakers from a number of GCARE's collaborative institutions across the world, including partners from the GCRF supported CArE-Homes (and CArE-Cities) projects that have been successful in monitoring household air pollution in several low-income homes in 12 cities across 12 ODA countries.
It served as a knowledge exchange platform across the ODA countries with the aim to share and discuss state-of-the-art best practices on indoor air quality and respiratory infection globally. The series exploited this knowledge by presenting the take of science during the global pandemic where indoor environments became even more important than ever. Such knowledge exchange will surely make a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of people.
On 12 November 2018, the iSCAPE Guildford team led by Professor Prashant Kumar organised the first Citizen Science Workshop. The aim of this workshop was to bring citizens and researchers together to address the issues of air pollution.
