Adapting to Climate Change (Part III) – Air Quality

August 24, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Thursday, August 24 · 12 – 1:30 pm CDT

Our skies have been particularly hazy with this year’s wildfire season, but urbanites and suburbanites experience plenty of other air quality issues, both from mobile and stationary sources. APA-IL Chicago Metro Section and ILASLA are partnering again for our third look at adapting to climate change:

  • 2021 – Stormwater & Flooding
  • 2022 – Extreme Heat
  • 2023 – AIR QUALITY

We’re bringing together scientists, urban planners, and landscape architects to discuss the issue and its implications—with a particular emphasis on practical applications. So grab your notebook and something to nosh, and join us for this lunchtime panel discussion!


You will receive a webinar link before the event.
