Health groups call on the leaders of the Western Balkan countries to harmonize national air quality standards with the World Health Organization Global air quality guidelines. Health experts should be actively involved in these decision-making processes to ensure the timely integration of public health measures into environmental policies. Compliance with WHO recommendations brings multiple benefits – reduced incidence of chronic diseases and premature deaths, reduced overall health costs and, most importantly, better health and higher productivity of people.
On the occasion of COP23, taking place in Bonn 6-17 November in Bonn, Germany, a broad network of organisations are calling on assembling for a climate march. HEAL will participate with a health delegation.
The Paris Agreement is a glimmer of hope. The world now has a common goal to stop the climate crisis. However, the world is still on track for dangerous global warming. Governments are not doing enough to stop the climate crisis.
The alliance is calling on governments and Germany to implement the Paris Agreement, to speed up the energy transition, and to commit to phasing out coal.
Join us on November 4th in Bonn to protest against coal and raise your voice for climate justice.
