On 26 May, the EU funded research project ENBEL (Enhancing Belmont Research Action to support EU policy making on climate change and health), of which HEAL is a partner, organises an event entitled Novel climate change and health research.
Air pollution is the top environmental risk to health in Europe and everyone is vulnerable to its impacts. People’s level of vulnerability is outside of individual control, as it evolves with age, health condition, socio-economic status, as well as where people live, study or work. The revision of the EU’s clean air standards is a unique and not-to-be missed opportunity for preventing premature death, heart attacks and strokes, cancer, asthma attacks and more.
For this revision of the Ambient Air Quality Directive, here are HEAL’s main three demands for clean air for health, for everyone:
