In a similar way, 2013 will be the Year of Air. The European Commission has launched a comprehensive review of its air policy building on the 2005 Thematic Strategy on Air Pollution and Clean Air for Europe (CAFÉ) initiative. A public consultation is currently being undertaken (to which UEPG will contribute). The Air review will be an important focus of the 7th Environmental Action Plan, and should be finalised in 2014. The Air review will be building as well on the European Environment Agency’s report on Air quality 2012.


The European Commission Green Week 2013 will take place from 4 to 7 June and the theme is air quality. The website for the Green Week is online right now.
