Skule Lunch & learn presents

The Paradox of Net-Zero:

Cities, Transportation, & Health

Featuring Professor Marianne Hatzopoulou

Join fellow Skule alumni online for our next edition of Skule Lunch & Learn!

 

Join us this December as Professor Marianne Hatzopoulou confronts the challenges of climate change on transportation. Climate-change mitigation in the transportation sector is a wicked-hard problem. Low emission technologies have begun to demonstrate some promise for air quality improvements. However, higher demand for these same technologies can therefore enable uncontrolled consumption. Almost every technology that has achieved increased efficiency in some aspect of the transportation system, has been met by unintended consequences. Using the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area as a testbed, this talk navigates transportation implications for climate and health.

 

Marianne Hatzopoulou is Professor in Civil and Mineral Engineering at the University of Toronto and Canada Research Chair in Transportation and Air Quality. She leads an active research group studying the interactions between transportation, built environments, air quality, climate, and public health. She works closely with epidemiologists in the development of improved measures for air pollution exposure and has received funding from federal and provincial health agencies to conduct integrative research in transportation engineering, air pollution, and public health. She serves on the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, and is associate editor of the journal Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment.

Join us online for this free and exclusive event brought to you by U of T Engineering.

LEED Green Associate (GA) Training – Webinar and Online
Dec 5 @ 1:00 pm – 5:30 pm

LEED Green Associate (GA) Training – Webinar and Online

*Students can use the discount code ‘green’ for $50 off the course price!

LEED is simply a sustainability scorecard for green buildings. Buildings can become LEED Certified as can people! The best way to break into the sustainability space is to attain the LEED Green Associate. It also shows employers and clients you have certified knowledge in the field. Since the LEED GA exam doesn’t have a stellar pass rate, the value of the extra letters behind your name will carry even more weight.

 My workshops have helped nearly 10K students and professionals learn the material cold (important for interview prep) AND clear the exam with a very high passing rate. This semester we are hosting everything online to fit your schedule!
