"Indoor Air Quality" with Michaela Shaw
Time & Location
About the Event
We spend 90% of our time indoors, so our indoor environment has an outsized
impact on our health. And yet, we’re only beginning to investigate those impacts
and how to mitigate them. What we’re going to look at in particular is the quality of the air in these indoor environ-ments and how that affects us. We’ve tightened up our building envelope, thus decreasing ventilation and trapping pollution. We’re also using products in our interior spaces that emit harmful
VOCs. Because of this, we see negative effects on our health and cognitive functioning. How do we measure the cost, and how do we invest in solving this problem? Learn how you can design to support healthy indoor air quality through ventilation and product specification.
