Wed. Oct. 27th4:30 pm Clean Air, Climate, and Equity – online Forward in Energy Forum. This summer's wildfires were a stark reminder of the links between air quality and a warming planet. Fortunately, many clean energy solutions to address climate change also improve air quality, especially for marginalized communities who are disproportionately harmed by air pollution. Join us to learn about the major sources of air pollution in Wisconsin, the communities most affected, and the potential for a multisolving approach to address air quality, climate, and equity concerns. Speakers include: Gail Good, Air Management Program Director, Wisconsin DNR; Tracey Holloway, Gaylord Nelson Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies & Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences; Christopher Tessum, Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Univ. of IL at Urbana-Champaign; Langston Verdin, Director of Health Strategy, City of Milwaukee Health Department

Moderated by Carol Barford, Associate Scientist and Director, UW Nelson Institute’s Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment (SAGE). To register and receive login details, visit: https://energy.wisc.edu/events/clean-air-climate-and-equity
