Welcome Symposium Participants

Dear Participants,

On behalf of the World Asthma Foundation, I would like to extend a warm welcome to the TimeToCleantheAir.com Symposium. We are proud to underwrite this important event that focuses on one of the most critical challenges of our time: clean air.

At the World Asthma Foundation, our vision is to improve the quality of life for all asthmatics. We advocate for improved understanding of the causes of asthma, diagnostic tools, methodologies, precision therapies, prevention, and one day, a cure. To achieve our vision, we support the asthma community with educational resources such as podcasts, bulletins, and in-depth scientific analysis, fostering improved outcomes, doctor-patient relationships, and joint decision-making to empower asthmatics to take charge of their own health.

The TimeToCleantheAir.com Symposium is an exceptional opportunity to bring together leaders, experts, and concerned citizens from around the world to address the challenges of clean air. During the event, participants will have access to informative and thought-provoking sessions led by distinguished speakers.

We are pleased to present the session “Politics of Air – Concepts, Challenges Barriers, Opportunities” led by the World Asthma Foundation. In this session, you will learn about the critical concepts, challenges, barriers, and opportunities of clean indoor air. We will explore the complexities of maintaining clean indoor air, the health impacts of poor indoor air quality, and the barriers to achieving clean indoor air. We will also examine opportunities for improving indoor air quality, such as increasing ventilation, reducing the use of products that emit harmful pollutants, and raising awareness and education about indoor air quality.

We live in interesting times, and clean air is a challenging and often heated political topic. However, we firmly believe that together, we can overcome the obstacles and create a healthier and safer environment for all. Stronger together, we can prevail through the bumpy roads ahead.

Thank you for joining us at this critical event, and we look forward to a productive and enlightening symposium.
