Buildings, Occupants and the Changing Environment 12:00 pm
Buildings, Occupants and the Changing Environment @ Online
Apr 30 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Join us for an online presentation as we explore the interactions between Buildings, Occupants and the Changing Environment. Occupants of buildings depend on what we term “good” Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ). The actual definition of IEQ is somewhat elusive, as it is the absence of problems in the indoor environment that could detract from the health and productivity of occupants. Buildings need to be designed and built with the occupant in mind, and as we rapidly progress into sustainable building designs, we also need to make sure that buildings can accommodate the changing environments of our cities and climate. We will explore some of the facets of the occupant/building interface in these changing environments. The event will be posted on our website: http://www.ncceh.ca/content/ncceh-environmental-health-seminar-series Presenter: Dr. Karen Bartlett, School of Population and Public Health, University of British Columbia
