Each year, Air Alliance Houston staff and volunteers meet with aspiring scientists from junior and senior high school at the Science and Engineering Fair of Houston.  At times when science is being challenged, it is refreshing to see our youth still have a passion to explore our world. They investigate problems and potential solutions to problems in air and water quality, energy efficiency, health effects of pollution, and much more. This year the fair will be on a Saturday afternoon, February 25, at University of Houston.Volunteers needed to help with judging. Judges would be needed from approximately 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. The fair is open to the public from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Details on the fair are available at www.sefhouston.org.

Breathable Cities: Using VW Funding to Improve Air in Montgomery County @ HARC
Jun 5 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Come learn about what’s happening in your community to clean up the dirty diesel emissions that Volkswagen created – and provide your feedback on potential projects in the Houston area using settlement money.

Last year, a judge ruled that Volkswagen will pay $15 billion dollars in the US settlement of its emissions cheating scandal. And what does that mean for us in Montgomery County and the Greater Houston region?

Texas will receive more than $190 million for environmental mitigation under the multibillion-dollar settlement. These funds have been set aside for the specific purpose of cleaning up our air – and we want to ensure that these funds are used to help our communities breathe cleaner air.

Because this is a part of a settlement, the funds are restricted for specific purposes. We want to hear your feedback on proposed projects that relate to vehicles in our communities – from our personal vehicles to municipal fleets to the heavy equipment used to haul freight.

We will provide a brief overview of why reducing diesel emissions can have a big impact on you and your family’s health, and we’ll share with you some cutting-edge ideas that VW could fund to help us all breathe a little easier.
Please RSVP – dinner will be provided.
