Current models of industrialization and consumption are degrading the environment and polluting the world, causing 9 million premature deaths per year. In this conference, we challenge the Stanford community and external partners to brainstorm solutions for three major sources of pollution while emphasizing their effects on human health: coal-fired industry, wildfires, and plastic. Jumping off from successful interdisciplinary work underway in each area, we will put forward a solutions-oriented interdisciplinary research agenda to foster a healthier and more sustainable future.
