This month, we’re excited to be hosting a series of events in the lead up to the launch of our eBook, ‘Cities for People and Nature’, and showcase webinar on November 26 (save the date!)

Today we’re starting with a series of social media posts to preview the upcoming activities and look back at some of our key findings.

But first, a little bit about us. The Clean Air and Urban Landscapes Hub is funded by the Australian Government’s National Environmental Science Program. We are a consortium of four universities: The University of Melbourne, RMIT University, The University of Western Australia and the University of Wollongong.

Our purpose – to make cities better for people and for biodiversity and to highlight Indigenous perspectives in urban environments. Our research expertise spans a wide diversity of fields, including atmospheric chemistry, civil engineering, urban planning, urban ecology, urban greening, conservation biology, social environmental science and population health. #CitiesPeopleNature
