Online event

Last year’s lockdowns gave us a flavour of clean air and clear skies. With air pollution causing one in five premature deaths, clean air is high on the political agenda. Renewable energy is part of the solution to cleaner air and healthier environments; yet is not considered a cornerstone of the strategy.

Where does renewable energy fit into the discussion of combating air pollution? How can we raise awareness of the role of renewable energy? And what opportunities exist to support the world's journey to a cleaner and healthier environment?

What to Expect

Join REN21's RENdez-vous on Wednesday 12th May for a discussion about air pollution, the effect on public health and well-being, and how renewables can tackle this challenge.

Meet leading voices from across the public health and renewable energy sectors to learn how we can strategically collaborate towards clean air, a healthy environment and in making the energy transition happen.

This event will include brief presentations followed by an extensive Q&A and discussion with the audience. It will also include small group discussions. Come prepared to network and have engaging dialogues!
