Our conference theme for 2017 is “Tackling urban air quality: citizen-led approaches.” We have a range of speakers from the ClairCity project, as well as our Advisory Panel and external invited guests. Over the course of the day, we will consider the issues of air quality and how these relate to climate change and public health. In this first conference, we are focusing our attention on the practical implications of current research on behavioural change related to environmental and social issues, and public engagement. Through the lectures and time allocated to discussion and response, this conference is a space to deliberate the future vision for air quality, climate change and public health. Please see our draft agenda for more details.

Szentendre is a beautiful town in Hungary, easily accessible from Budapest just one hour away. On the registration form you will find hotel and logistical information.

We look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible to our conference. If you have any questions or would like to register for the conference, please use the registration form attached and contact epeto@rec.org
