The Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand invite you to attend the 24th International Clean Air and Environment conference, to be held from 16-18 September, 2019 at The Rydges Lakeland Resort, Queenstown, located on the stunning south island of New Zealand. The theme of CASANZ19 is:

‘Air Quality and the Built Environment’

The theme Air Quality and the Built Environment, addresses all aspects of air quality regulation, emerging technologies, environmental challenges in urban environments, health impacts and the growing social awareness of air quality as an everyday concern.

As society has moved towards the majority of people living in urban environments, conflicts have arisen when the need to move around, warm our homes and have industry to provide work has resulted in increasing effects on the air quality that we depend on.  CASANZ19 seeks to explore the air quality issues created by these conflicts and look at actions to ensure healthy air for everyone.

Each day will have a varying theme and includes:

Day 1 Air quality health effects and current monitoring and modelling methods: Understanding the extent and impacts of air quality on human health, including wood smoke.
Day 2 Creating sustainable communities:  Including new technologies, changing urban design, modal shift and engaging communities.
Day 3 Assessing and evaluating impacts from specific sources on people and communities:  including amenity, woodsmoke, motor vehicles and shipping.

The conference will also feature Special Interest Group Workshops, training courses, breakfast seminars, site visits, the gala dinner and awards evening, and much more.

We hope to stimulate discussion and new thinking that can be applied across the air quality and climate change fields by bringing together over 300 highly influential global industry experts, policy and decision makers and key equipment suppliers of the environment sector, from Australia, New Zealand and around the world.

We look forward to you joining us for CASANZ19, which is shaping up to be the event of the year for the global air quality industry.
