The IAUC is looking forward to engage with you and continue the Urban Climate dialogue despite the ongoing global pandemic. We have formed an Engagement Committee with a plan for virtual activities in the absence of face-to-face events in 2020-2021. As part of this effort, we are initiating monthly virtual webinars that include presentations and discussions.

We are very pleased to invite you to the historic, first IAUC webinar 6 November that will celebrate our very own Luke Howard Award winners: Janet Barlow (2019 winner) and Alberto Martilli (2020 winner).

Date and time: 6 November 11:00 – 12:15 UTC, which is 6:00 New York (EST), 12:00 in Paris (CET), 16:30 in Dehli (IST), 19:00 in Beijing (CST), and 22:00 in Sydney (AEDT).

Theme: Celebrating IAUC’s Luke Howard award winners and discussion on ‘Observing and Modelling the Urban Boundary Layer’.

The webinar will be recorded and shared with the community, so that people who are unavailable or in inconvenient timezones are able to follow the presentations and discussion. This will be the first webinar in a series of monthly webinars, please bear with us if there are any technical difficulties. Also, please send any suggestions for speakers or themes, or other community engagement activities we should develop or you would like to see highlighted.
