How can we create clean air in our cities for a better quality of life?

Following the publication of the reflection paper Towards a sustainable Europe 2030 and the current review of the EU Ambient Air Quality Directives we invite you to a seminar on the importance of clean air in our cities. During this EU Green Week Partner Event we will get the perspective from several stakeholders, such as the European Institutions, cities and NGOs. We will discuss what has been done, what further measures are needed, and how EU legislation can be implemented more effectively?  The third sustainable development goal aims to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. Exposure to air pollution by fine particulate matter in urban areas decreased by almost 20% in the EU in 2010-2015. However, air pollution is still the number one environmental cause of premature death. More than 400,000 people yearly die prematurely in the EU due to bad air quality; millions suffer from respiratory and cardiovascular diseases caused by air pollution.  Join us for this seminar and discussion on how we can create sustainable cities with clean air and good quality of life!
