The European Commission's annual green week will this year focus on air pollution
The European Commission's annual conference on environment policy will this year focus on air quality.
Despite progress by some member states to reduce pollution, many are still breaching air quality standards in towns and cities. This year the Commission is reviewing its air quality policies with the aim of tightening standards.
Green Week will feature a series of speeches and debates to help find new ways of tackling Europe's air quality problem with delegates expected from government, business and industry, non-governmental organisations, academia and the media.
