Sustainability Roundtable: Russ Barnett on Indoor Air Quality

On this week’s edition of the Access Hour, we bring you a recording from the August 30, 2019 Sustainability Roundtable at the University of Louisville, featuring Russ Barnett of UofL's Envirome Institute. Russ shared the results of his 3 year study on Indoor Air Quality in nearly 200 homes around the Louisville region. The results may surprise you, especially in comparison to the outdoor air quality which receives so much attention in our region.

All are welcome tor UofL's Sustainability Roundtable on alternate Fridays throughout the fall at 11am in room 200 of the Urban & Public Affairs building at 426 W Bloom St. Upcoming Fall Roundtables include:

Sept. 13 – Mark Wourms, Bernheim Arboretum & Research Forest - Forest Under Threat
Sept. 27 – Lilias Pettit-Scott, Urban Agriculture Coalition - High Tunnel Production
Oct. 11 – Allison Smith, Metro Louisville - Brownfields
Oct. 25 – TBA
Nov. 8 – TBA

The format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a variety of speakers throughout the year, followed by 20-30 minute open discussion. Please feel free to bring your lunch! Anyone with an interest in sustainability can give talks at the speaker series and participate in the audience, including faculty, staff, students, practitioners, teachers, government officials, and members of the public.
