On 4-7 June 2013, the Green Week took place in Brussels. The Europe's largest environment conference kicked off under the banner “Cleaner Air for All”. 2013 edition of Green Week was dedicated to air, and saw some 3000 participants gathering to discuss air-related issues. Stakeholders, NGOs, government representatives and EU officials searched for solutions to air pollution, like how to safeguard air quality against the backdrop of rising industrial and energy production, the rise in road traffic and urbanisation, the burning of fossil fuels, and climate change.
This video shows extracts of the closing session - "How do we ensure clean Air for All?" and statements given by Simon Upton, Environment Director at the OECD. SHOTLISTLINK
