The Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand invite you to attend the 25th International Clean Air and Environment conference, ‘CASANZ 2021’, to be held online. This conference will be unique in nature and will be a reflection of the effects of fires and COVID-19 on air quality since the CASANZ19 conference held in Queenstown, New Zealand.

To reflect on these unprecedented events of the past 12 months, and what they mean for long term strategies for air quality management, is a central theme for CASANZ 2021:  ‘Air Quality in Unprecedented Times’

The 2019-20 summer bushfire season, followed by the global pandemic, produced clear effects on air quality from one extreme of smoke related pollution to another where significant reductions in combustion related releases of air pollutants were observed worldwide.

The 25th International Clean Air and Environment Conference is the only opportunity for our air quality industry to share learnings and different perspectives via an engaging, interactive program with input from high profile speakers and global industry leaders. CASANZ 2021 is a fully peer reviewed conference where we come together online, providing flexibility for delegates to participate safely and to encourage greater collaboration and participation.

Multiple short sessions will run across five days and will offer the full value of past conferences including networking opportunities, exhibitors, and an access to an array of international invited speakers.

Day 1 Welcome online, join the CASANZ hub for a networking evening at the Air Bar where we set the scene for the week ahead over a drink.
Day 2 Headline speaker Professor Tim Flannery will provide his insight into “The future for our Cities”
Day 3 Bushfires, Climate Change and impacts on Air Quality. CASANZ fellow Dr Tom Beer and Professor David Karoly provide their thoughts and research on how recent events have impacted Australia.
