A Grand Rounds webinar: Housing, Climate Change, and Environmental Justice
Wednesday, January 18, 2023, 11:00 AM until 12:00 PM
Sponsored by the MGH Institute of Health Professions. Housing is key to both climate mitigation and adaptation, but designing optimal interventions is challenging given the need to consider carbon emissions, indoor air, thermal comfort, energy bills, and more. These issues are particularly challenging for low-income households, where energy insecurity can pose considerable challenges and access to air conditioning and adequate ventilation are more limited. This presentation will give an overview of the multiple connections between housing and climate change, considering exposure disparities and complex tradeoffs that occur in a warming climate.
