The EPA Sustainable and Healthy Communities (SHC) Seminar Series presents the Tribal Science Webinar Series, co-hosted by the National Center for Environmental Research (NCER) and the Office of Science Policy (OSP). The webinar series provides a forum for discussion of the complex environmental issues facing many tribal and indigenous communities, and features a wide variety of expert guest speakers from government, academic institutions and other organizations. This month’s webinar focuses on air pollution monitoring research collaborations with Native American and Hawaiian Native Partners. Presenters will discuss the development and nature of their partnerships, current research activities, and strategies for community engagement. These grants were funded by the Science to Achieve Results (STAR) 2014 Request for Application (RFA) on Air Pollution Monitoring for Communities.
