EU Clean Air Forum

28. novembra. 2019 @ 9:00 am - 29. novembra. 2019 @ 5:00 pm

Clean air is essential for healthy living.

While air quality has improved across the European Union over the past decades, air pollution continues to cause respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. Air pollution is still the number one environmental cause of premature deaths in Europe.

In November 2017 a first EU Clean Air Forum convened in Paris. This Forum concluded with a clear message: solutions to improve air quality further are within reach, but to tackle air pollution successfully, we need to work together across economic sectors, across decision-making levels, across policy areas and together with citizens.

The European Commission continues to be committed to this and is organising, in close collaboration with the Ministry of Environment of the Slovak Republic, a second EU Clean Air Forum on 28 and 29 November 2019.

This Forum will focus on three themes: air quality and energy; air quality and agriculture; and clean air funding mechanisms. It will bring together decision-makers, stakeholders and experts on the above topics in a two-day conference to reflect on the development and implementation of effective European, national and local air policies, projects and programmes.
