The largest annual conference on European environment policy, ‘Green Week’ (4-7 June), is approaching; it will offer opportunities for debate and exchanges of experience on the topic of air quality/pollution with representatives from the European Commission, NGOS, universities and scientific bodies. “Air quality - taking care of the air we breathe” is available to help journalists cover this topic. It highlights two of the sectors that play a key part in contamination – transport and agriculture – and illustrate the risks, as well as some solutions to reduce polluting emissions.
This clip illustrates the qualities that helped the German city of Hamburg become the 2011 European Green Capital, in a competition created by the European Commission in 2008 to recognise cities with good track records and ambitious plans to improve their environment.
The clip highlights how Hamburg balances economic and environmental development. The next European Green Capitals will be Vitoria-Gasteiz (Spain) for 2012 and Nantes (France) for 2013.
The 2014 European Green Capital is being selected this year, with entries open now until 14 October. By placing this 1 min. 18 sec. clip on your website, you will help to raise awareness of the European Green Capital Award.
