We are pleased to announce the workshop program for “Air Pollution, Plastics, and Global Health,” to be held via Zoom on November 29, 2023.
This collaborative workshop brings together scholars from around the world, all dedicated to examining the critical intersection of air pollution, plastics, and global health. Providing a comprehensive exploration from a variety of perspectives, the workshop underscores the urgent need to address the complex interplay between plastics and air pollution. Presentations will analyze the far-reaching environmental consequences of plastic production, the widespread presence of microplastics in the air, transformative narratives that inspire change, and strategies to mitigate plastic pollution. The workshop program is available below, with each panel comprised of three to four 15-20-minute presentations and allocated time for questions. Details of each panel can be found within.
