2013 European Year of Air: 9th of December, ATMO organizes the closing conference in Strasbourg

On Monday, 9 December 2013, the ATMO France Federation in partnership with ASPAATMO-Alsace organizes the closing conference of the European Year of Air in the presence of Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for the Environment.

It will be the opportunity to take stock on the European Year of Air launched on January 8 in Brussels and continued with consultation of the parties involved, reflections on new Air Directives, Green Week 2013 devoted to air, etc. And it takes place more generally in a context of technical, financial and social difficulties to meet European air quality challenges.

ATMO France represents the 27 regional organisations of air quality assessment accredited by the French Ministry of Sustainable Development. They play a central role for the construction of local shared diagnosis and concerted mitigation action programs with an approach air-climate-energy as it is promoted by the European Union.

Socio Economic implications For Individual Responses to Air Pollution policies in EU +27

SEFIRA has the objective of creating a European coordination of transdisciplinary scientific and socio-economic resources in order to support the review and implementation of air quality legislation by the European Commission (EC) led by DG Environment. SEFIRA will coordinate some of the best scientific and socio-economic resources and will review air quality policies and legislation at the interface between environmental, economic and social sciences in order to achieve a deeper understanding of these complex issues. The main fields involved in the action will be atmospheric sciences, environmental and legal sociology, anthropology, geography and economics.
