This seminar looked at the issues surrounding the impacts of air pollution and how best to regulate it to protect both human health and the environment.
Every year more than 3000 people die prematurely from exposure to air pollutions. Thousands more are made sick and lose years of healthy life from illness suffered as a result of exposure to air pollution.
The impacts of air pollution affect everybody but they affect some far worse than others. The most polluted places are typically less well off and the most vulnerable are those who are already sick.
Environmental Justice Australia highlighted these issues in our recent report Clearing the air: Why Australia urgently needs effective national air pollution laws (PDF 1.6MB).
Building on the report, this seminar looked at the issues surrounding the impacts of air pollution and how best to regulate it to protect both human health and the environment.
