Fighting against Air Pollution and for Better Climate Protection

Jülich scientists participating in side event at UN climate summit

Jülich/Katowice/Leipzig/Potsdam, 30 November 2018 – At the UN Climate Change Conference, German scientists will present the latest research findings on air pollution and, in collaboration with the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO), discuss sustainable solutions. In doing so, the German climate consortium (DKK) aims to raise awareness of the global dimension of air pollution and to promote the adoption of joint solutions. Measures for reducing air pollution in many parts of the world not only protect the health of the millions of people affected by this problem, but also help to combat climate change and lay a course for a sustainable future. The event is one of more than 100 side events on key issues being held in the EU Pavilion at COP24, the UN Climate Change Conference, which is taking place on 2–14 December in Katowice, Poland.
