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.

The Forum will bring together decision-makers, stakeholders and experts in a one and a half day conference to reflect on the development and implementation of effective European, national and local air policies, projects and programmes – and to inform about the ongoing revision of EU rules.
The third EU Clean Air Forum will focus on six themes (with sessions dedicated to each of these):
Day One (18 November 2021, 9:00 to 18:00)
- Zero pollution: air quality and health
- Engagement with cities and citizens
- Linking clean air, climate and recovery
- Air pollution, climate change and biodiversity: the case of ozone
Day Two (19 November 2021, 9:30 to 13:00)
- Access to justice for clean air
- Air quality and the revision of EU rules on ambient air quality
