The greenness, air pollution and health research group is part of a wide international research network. Last year's annual meeting was a hybrid solution, but a substantial part of the network managed to meet in person, at Solstrand, Bergen.
The research group is part of the Department of Global Public Health and Primary Care, University of Bergen, Norway.
Our vision is to contribute to a more sustainable society through increased knowledge on how environmental exposures - both good and bad - affect health in different parts of the population.
Our focus is currently on long-term effects of greenness and air pollution exposures, but in the future the work of this group will also encompass a more holistic approach assessing the impacts of a wide range of environmental exposures and lifestyle factors on public health. We aim for our knowledge to be implemented in guidelines and policymaking, with the overarching aim of improving public health within a sustainability framework.
Our focus is international, and our research partners come from all over Europe. The largest ongoing project at the moment is Life-GAP.
