Green Week is looking for events taking place in towns and
cities around Europe to link in with the theme air quality. Please
submit a description of your event addressing the theme of ‘AIR
QUALITY’, by filling out the online application
form. Eligible events taking place at local or regional level
might include car-free days, conferences, youth workshops, art
exhibitions or guided tours, to name a few. Linking your event to
Green Week means being part of a Europe-wide campaign and bringing
better visibility to your event which, if selected, will be
published on the Green Week website.
Despite progress over recent years, levels of harmful pollutants in densely populated areas of Europe still widely exceed a number of air quality standards. As the European Commission prepares to review its current air quality policy, cities are best-placed to help raise awareness and promote behavioural change among citizens and ultimately improve the air we breathe.
