The European Environment Agency estimates that 374,000 Europeans die prematurely every year due to air pollution.

The first EU Clean Air Forum took place two years ago in Paris and focused on transport. The second edition takes place in Bratislava on 28-29 November 2019 and tackles polluting substances from heating and agriculture.

Decision-makers and experts will also discuss the impact of polluted air on public health and financial instruments to improve air quality.

EURACTIV is the media partner of the Forum which is organised by the European Commission in cooperation with the Ministry of Environment of the Slovak Republic.
