March Meeting

Following HEDON's popular past events, we're hosting another interesting and exciting LondonRIG. We're lucky enough to have one of our wonderful patrons, Kirk Smith, here in the UK to give a talk this March.

About

The London Regional Interest Group was started as an informal grouping of people, working in the Household Energy Sector in developing countries, to share their knowledge and discuss current issues.

Speakers

A Professor and Director at the University of California's School of Public Health, shares a Nobel Peace Prize, but most importantly, he is one of HEDON Patrons. We are extremely excited to announce that we are able to host the brilliant Kirk Smith at our next London meeting.

"He serves on a number of national and international scientific advisory committees including the Global Energy Assessment, National Research Council’s Board on Atmospheric Science and Climate, the Executive Committee for WHO Air Quality Guidelines, and the International Comparative Risk Assessment. He participated, along with many other scientists, in the IPCC’s 3rd and 4th assessments and shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize and is Convening Lead Author for Climate and Health for the 5th Assessment. He holds visiting professorships in India and China and bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees from UC Berkeley and, in 1997, was elected member in the US National Academy of Sciences, one of the highest honors awarded to US Scientists by their peers. In 2009, he received the Heinz Prize in Environment." University of California
