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.
