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....

I like so much this course. This completes my training in environmental sciences, because in my master's degree there are no special courses on the subject. I am developing a thesis on indoor and outdoor air quality in my country, and this helps me a lot. It also introduces you to various parts of the topic from pollutants, the impact on health and vulnerable populations. I loved that they gave a lot of real data about world problems and examples in areas like public health.

First step to resolve the problem is to realize there is one, same with air pollution the course teaches about health effects in most detailed way paving the way toward solutions. I was weak in health related consequences. In engineering institutions the air pollution courses mostly revolves around solutions not consequences. I think it would be better if someone completely understand the problem them move to the solution.

I really like the format of this course. Video lectures were not lengthy and were broken down into chunks, and quizzes were done right after these short lectures. As a result, retention of the information from the lecture is better. Moreover, the lecturers of this course were engaging, which is a plus for an online course, where there is no face-to-face or physical interaction.

Incrível !! As descobertas que fiz, foram impressionantes. Um assunto que não é dado muito atenção, mas que impacta enormemente 24 horas por dia em nossas vidas! Até para usar a torradeira, eu vejo que emito poluentes, e nós seres humanos inclusive. Muito importante o conteúdo e vou levar para a vida toda esses ensinamentos! Muito obrigada.

I found this course a very good basic course on air pollution, usefull for professional goals as well as for personal knowledge. I'd really like to attend an intermediate course on air pollution, with some experimental insights and more details on indoor air pollution even in the western (European for examples) societies.
