Air for Health Association developed a training seminar that aims to raise awareness among employees of the unionized enterprises of the National Trade Union Federation "Metal-Electro" of the CPSU, on the health consequences of environmental pollution, climate change and its impact on the economy, the opportunities that the Green Pact gives our country.
Air for Health and our partners at the Global Climate and Health Alliance (GCHA) as well as their partners Health Care Without Harm, the Health and Environment Alliance, the US Climate and Health Alliance and the UK Health Alliance for Climate Change are seeking to organise representatives from the health community, to promote practical and health-oriented decision-making, and create tangible policy changes at the city level that will lead to a clear global trend to reduce urban air pollution by 2030. This will lead to reductions in deaths, disease and, as a side effect, lower greenhouse gas emissions.
