Decoding dirty air: Joining the dots for the big solution – A talk by Anumita Roy Chowdhury
Air pollution is a compelling human story, and yet a most conflicted and unresolved one. While science continues to demystify the problem and provide technical answers, uptake of the solutions remains limited and contested. How can public understanding, opinion and politics contribute to building up the scale and speed of change needed for clean air?
