The third webinar series on the “Air Pollution Mitigation Using Passive Techniques in the Built Environment: Sharing International Best Practice” will be presented at 11 a.m. EDT/ 8 a.m. PDT on May 30. The webinar is on “Green Infrastructure: Their Role in Air Pollution Abatement.”

Richard Baldauf of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is charing the webinar and will give a presentation on Exploring Green Infrastructure Air Quality Impacts as Part of Sustainable Urban Design.

Dr. Sara Janhäll of RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, Sweden, will present on Deposition and Dispersion – Interaction between Vegetation and Particle Air Pollution.

Dr. David Nowak, USDA Forest Service, will present on The Role of Urban Trees in Mitigating Air Pollution.

EPA is participating in the international webinar series, which aims to bring together experts to collaborate in a community forum on best practices around passive mitigation of air pollution in the built environment. Experts are providing their unique experiences for gathering evidence on passive techniques to mitigate air pollution, such as green infrastructures, solid barriers and urban design.

The series has attracted over 750 registrants from more than 55 countries, which reflects the international community participating in the webinars. This webinar is also officially featured in the European events programme for EU Green Week 2019 (@EU_ENV #EUGreenWeek).
