This week, we issued a series of topical video clips on air pollution to highlight this huge issue. After Climate Change, air pollution is the top environmental concern of EU citizens. It is also the number one environmental cause of early death in the EU – impacting more than 400 000 people each year. Air pollution affects people living in cities the most. From asthma and heart disease to lung cancer, poor air quality has triggered chronic health conditions in millions of Europeans. And it’s a heavy economic burden - costing us well over €20 billion a year.
These issues will be discussed in Paris on 16-17 November 2017 at the Clean Air Forum. The forum will raise the importance of air pollution issues on the international stage, and bring together experts, stakeholders and decision-makers to share knowledge and discuss successful solutions. This year's Clean Air Forum will focus on three topics: air quality in cities, agriculture and air quality, and clean air business opportunities.
