From May 31st until June 13th, the European Green Week 2021 will be dedicated to the ‘zero pollution ambition’.
Pollution affects everybody. It is the largest environmental cause of multiple mental and physical diseases and one of the main reasons for the loss of biodiversity. But pollution can be prevented.
The EU Action Plan toward a Zero Pollution Ambition is a key action of the European Green Deal scheduled for spring 2021. It will help to create a toxic-free environment across the EU by better monitoring, reporting, preventing and remedying pollution from air, water, soil, and consumer products. It will also support the post-COVID 19 recovery by helping to rebuild a more sustainable EU economy, creating job opportunities and reducing social inequalities.
The European Green Week 2021 will look also at other relevant European Green Deal initiatives, such the climate initiatives, the upcoming Chemicals Strategy, as well as initiatives in the field of energy, industry, mobility, agriculture, fisheries, health and biodiversity. Take part in the programme and seize the opportunity to engage with all stakeholders and interested citizens on how we can work together to make the ambition for a zero pollution and toxic-free environment a reality.
