EU Clean Air Forum

The third EU Clean Air Forum will take place on 18 and 19 November 2021.

Clean air policy works: air quality has improved across the European Union over the past decades. But this does not mean we have solved the air pollution challenge: air pollution continues to cause respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, and it still is the number one environmental cause of premature deaths in Europe.

The EU is working to ensure that every citizen can breathe without risking their well-being.

The European Commission is organising the third EU Clean Air Forum, in close collaboration with the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge of the Kingdom of Spain.

The exact format of the third EU Clean Air Forum will be decided at a later date in view of the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions applicable in the EU and the host-country.
