HEAL joins partnership on air quality

On 10 October, HEAL participated in an official meeting of the Partnership on Air Quality, an action initiated by the Dutch Ministry of Environment, with the main objective to improve air quality in cities and to bring the ‘healthy city’ higher on the EU agenda as part of the Urban Agenda.

Currently, there are many cities that have difficulty complying with EU air quality legislation, hence it is very important to identify gaps, overlaps and contradictions regarding regulations and funding possibilities related to air quality, specifically in urban areas and exchange of knowledge and best practices will be needed. HEAL is the only health non-profit organisation represented in the partnership and we will use our wide network of members and partners to communicate the results of the project to the wider public as well as give input on good existing practices.
