The Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) and the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) recently hosted yesterday a half day science to policy consultation workshop with representatives of the Zagreb administration and other stakeholders, on how to reduce the urban burden of disease in Zagreb through environmental policies. This consultation workshop was the second in a series of stakeholder engagement activities in various cities in Europe.
HEAL is one of the signatories (together with WWF, BirdLife Europe, EEB, CEE Bankwatch, CAN Europe, Transport & Environment and NatureFriends International) of a joint letter to Commission President von der Leyen, European Parliament President Sassoli and European Council President Michel.
The letter recognises the European Union’s efforts on COVID-19 crisis and highlights that an EU response must address the immediate health, social and economic urgency to protect the most vulnerable. The response must also ensure we continue down Europe’s chosen path towards a healthy and sustainable economy, leaving no-one behind and in line with the European Green Deal.
