About the Course

We all have to breathe to live. But the air we breathe is polluted both outdoors and indoors. Each year, this pollution costs 7 million lives across the globe – and a lot of suffering. 1 in 8 deaths is due to air pollution. This course will provide you with an introduction to the most recent research in the field of health effects of air pollution as well as a broader understanding of sources and spread of air pollution and what we should do about it. What is air pollution? What are the sources? How and where are we exposed outdoors and indoors? What happens in the body? Which diseases are the result? Who are the most vulnerable? How can we assess the effects of air pollution? And what should we do to reach the Sustainable Development Goal to “substantially reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and air, water and soil pollution”? These are some of the important questions we will address in the course. During the course you will meet researchers and experts from the University of Copenhagen and the Technical University of Denmark. They work with different aspects of air pollution and health: toxicology, exposure assessment, epidemiology, engineering and health impact assessment. It is a global responsibility to combat the health impacts of air pollution, and this fight can only be won through new knowledge and global collaboration. We hope you will join us in the course and equip yourself to take part in this global and individual health challenge....

It was very much informative course for me as a M.Sc Scholar student of department of Civil Engineering (Major: Environmental Engineering) from KUET, Khulna-9203, Bangladesh. By Calculating AQI I can now easily find out the health effect both in indoor and outdoor air situation through this course. Thanks to honorable course teachers.

A great introduction to Air Pollution. This course provides an overview of indoor and outdoor air pollution globally, including pollutants, sources, health effects and some strategies to reduce air pollution and exposure. Very good videos which provide robust information in a way that is clear, attractive and easy to understand.

a nice short course with quite a lot of graphical data which helps us understand the situation globally but I would have loved the course even more if it was a bit more in detail because it touched upon a lot of topics but all of them remained a bit open-ended. A deeper look into each aspect would have been way more insightful.

This course is very good to understand the basic and necessity of tackling air pollution. But there are no models discussed to predict the air pollution. Waiting for a course involving machine learning and air pollution
