Thermal comfort improves liveability and health outcome in buildings. Temperature, humidity and natural ventilation are key parameters that define thermal comfort; at the same time, they have a direct relationship with the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19 inside dwellings. The ongoing pandemic has reinforced the need to look at housing layouts, building design and choice of materials for addressing thermal comfort not only as enablers of liveability, but also as a catalyst to reduce disease burden in residential buildings.
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to join a Round Table and Webinar where the key stakeholders in mass housing are expected to discuss the most pertinent questions, capture the different perspectives, and draw up a comprehensive action plan for the future.
We look forward to seeing you.
Please note: This is a free online event, and registration is open to all. All those who register will receive an automatic confirmation. However, this event can accommodate a limited number of attendees on a first come-first served basis only. Therefore, please try to join 5 minutes before the scheduled time.
