Watch Now | Research for People & Planet: Residential Weatherization, Energy Security & Health Disparities

Residential decarbonization and weatherization programs have the potential to reduce health disparities related to energy insecurity, but these programs remain largely underutilized by vulnerable populations living in older, leaky housing who would most benefit. This panel will discuss the links between these programs, energy security, and health disparities, as well as the critical role of community engagement in implementation.

The Research for People & Planet Series is hosted by the Boston University Institute for Global Sustainability (IGS).
