Showcase your efforts in the Air Quality Code of Good Practices!

The Urban Partnership on Air Quality main objective is to improve air quality in cities and bring the ‘healthy city’ higher on the local, national and EU agendas as part of the Urban Agenda. ​As part of their work, the Partnership is developing a Code of Good Practices that aims to provide guidance and inspiration to cities drafting and implementing air quality plans

If you wish to get to enhance the visibility of your City’s commitment to Air Quality and to improve air quality and the health of your citizens, then this is your chance to see your best air quality measures showcased in the Code together with other outstanding examples of successful practices from all over Europe. To participate you must:

  • Draft in English, one A4 format page (images included), using the template available here;
  • If possible, provide information and data about impact or effectiveness in terms of air quality improvement achieved;
