The goal of this virtual conference, “Converging COVID-19, environment, health, and equity,” is to bring together different disciplines of environmental engineering and science (water, wastewater, air, food, waste, built environment) plus equity and climate change to discuss actions needed to form “a healthy, just and equitable society.” 


This conference will be held weekly from 12-1:30 pm ET over 6 weeks beginning on October 16th, 2020 and ending on November 20th, 2020. It will combine asynchronous ~3 minute videos produced on each speaker’s research, and shared on the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors’ (AEESP) YouTube Channel, and a professionally hosted synchronous 90 minute moderated, interactive webinar that is streamed live via YouTube. 


The six different synchronous sessions will feature a session chair, and the presenters who will be asked to give short introductions on the main takeaways showing how their research relates to the given interdisciplinary session topic. The session chair will then guide the discussion based on questions developed prior to the conference with the conference committee. While Q&A will be made available during the session, attendees will also be encouraged to Tweet their questions, and comments with the #AEESPConvergingCOVID19. Once finished, the video for each session will be uploaded to the AEESP YouTube channel where comments will be allowed.


Faculty from the University of South Florida (Drs. Katherine Alfredo, James Mihelcic, Amy Stuart, and Maya Trotz) and the University of California Merced (Dr. Colleen Naughton) are pleased to host this virtual conference with support from the Association of Environmental Engineering & Science Professors (AEESP) and a National Science Foundation grant #2037862: “Collaborative Research: Converging COVID-19, environment, health, and equity,” awarded through the Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems (CBET) program.
