Air pollution has become the biggest environmental health risk with over 7 million deaths globally and 400.000 in Europe attributed to air pollution. The external health-related costs in Europe are in the range of €330- 940 billion per year. Despite the existing legislative framework and the citizens’ right to clean air in Europe, continuing violations of air pollution limits remain a problem and threaten health, the environment and the climate.

We invite you to discuss strategies to improve urban air quality and its future challenges at the “Clean Air for European Cities” Conference, 6 July 2015 at the Landesvertretung Niedersachsen, In den Ministergärten 10, 10117 Berlin. What measures can cities take to effectively improve their air quality? What can local and national governments do to support them? And what is happening to the proposed Clean Air legislation package on EU level right now?

The conference will start with a short overview of the Clean Air project activities, followed by a keynote from the European Commission and a second keynote from Christer Ågren (AirClim) on air quality and climate change. After a coffee break there will be two panel discussions: In Panel I representatives from European best practice cities will discuss their clean air strategies with focus on public transport, cycling, non-road mobile machinery and shipping. The second Panel aims to elaborate on the political challenges for future of urban air quality with representatives from the European Commission, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Eurocities and ClientEarth. After a concluding outlook on the future of urban air quality there will be a buffet and get-together with the possibility to visit the exhibition presenting the project activities.
