Regional climate change in cities is the most documented phenomenon of climate change . Higher urban temperatures are documented experimentally for more than 450 major cities in the world. Numerous investigations demonstrate that the mean magnitude of the temperature increase may exceed 4-6 C, while at the peak it may exceed 10 C. The serious increase of the frequency and the strength of heat waves creates strong synergies between the global and regional climate change and intensify the magnitude of the overheating

The indoor thermal comfort and air quality in classrooms have become of interest worldwide, predominantly because of their influence on children’s health, learning performance and productivity. Growing concerns with building energy efficiency emphasize the significance of this topic. This paper illustrates the outcome of a field study conducted in secondary school classrooms in Sydney, Australia, during the school year in 2018/2019.

This study aims to assess the indoor thermal and environmental quality of low-income households in New South Wales, Australia. It adds evidence-based findings on the performance of residential buildings and contributes to improving the indoor environmental quality of social housing. The research presented in this paper involved subjective and objective evaluation of indoor air and environmental quality.
The AIVC and the CRC (Cooperative Research Centre) for Low Carbon Living, in collaboration with the Australian Government Department of Energy and the Environment ASHRAE, AIRAH, venticool and UNSW Sydney, presented on March 23 a one day workshop in Sydney on ‘Ventilation for Indoor Air Quality and Cooling’
The seminar aimed to inform Australian researchers, engineers and scientists about recent developments in the field of ventilation, cooling and air quality technologies.
The AIVC (Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre) and the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Low Carbon Living warmly invite you to participate in a free, one-day workshop Ventilation for Indoor Air Quality and Cooling in Sydney on Friday 23 March, 2018.
The workshop is presented in collaboration with the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating (AIRAH) and UNSW Built Environment.
