Clean Air Forum

16 November 2017, 9:00 to 17 November 2017, 18:00

About the Conference

Clean air is essential for healthy living. The European Union is working to ensure that every citizen can breathe without risking their well-being. Progress has been made over the past decades, but more needs to be done still.

For now, air pollution remains to be the number one environmental cause of premature deaths in the European Union. Estimates show that air pollution is causing more than 400 000 premature deaths each year. Besides this, millions of Europeans suffer from respiratory and cardiovascular diseases caused by air pollution. The economic costs of air pollution in the EU are well over €20 billion a year.

The European Commission is committed to address air this, and to achieve levels of air pollution which do not give rise to significant negative impacts on or risks to on human health and the environment.

The Clean Air Forum will focus on three themes: air quality in cities; air pollution from the agricultural sector; and clean air business opportunities. The conference itself will thus bring together experts on the above topics as well as decision-makers and stakeholders in a two-day conference in Paris, France. Although, the conference will be in English, translation into French will be provided.
