Air pollution to become worlds leading cause of premature death by 2050

Leading experts will be discussing prominent environmental issues - including how air pollution will become the world’s top environmental cause of premature death in the coming decades - at an event on Wednesday 25 November.

During the event, titled ‘Framing the Climate Crisis’, Professor Paul Monks, Dr Julian Matthews and Dr Caroline Upton will be presenting on their research into climate issues, including how global air quality is declining, the issues facing journalists reporting on climate change and how policy makers need to lead the charge for sustainability.

The workshop will bring together a range of diverse views to explore the possibilities of a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding the climate crisis.

Each academic will deliver a presentation informed by their research which will be followed by a roundtable discussion to open up a dialogue between these perspectives.

The event has been organised by the School of Management’s Sustainability Research Network and will be followed by a conference on Scale and Sustainably next spring.

‘Framing the Climate Crisis’ will take place on Wednesday 25 November at the University of Leicester in the Ken Edwards Building Room 322 between 12:30 - 3:30pm.
