European Green Deal Data Space for local air quality decisions
Air quality in urban environments is a matter of public health, environmental sustainability, and fortifying the resilence of our cities against the challenges of climate change. Nowadays it is commonly shared that decision-making in this regard needs to be based on reliable data that comes from scientific sources. For this reason, having access to scientific data in a simple, integrated and interoperable way can help both policymakers and citizens as a whole to understand the existing pollution levels and implement targeted strategies.
In this sense, the European Strategy for Data aims to create a single data market that guarantees Europe’s competitiveness and data sovereignty. To this end, the creation of several common European data spaces will ensure that more data is available for use, while maintaining control of those who generate it. The European Green Deal Data Space is one of them, that will adress three main objectives: biodiversity conservation, water pollution and climate change.
At the user level, there are two main reasons for not being able to access data: either you do not know that data exists or, although you know that this data exisits, they cannot be accessed. In this event we want to overcome these two barriers by putting on the table the needs of those people who generate and store data, as well as those who want to use it in order to help in the design of a usefull European Green Deal Data Space. On this occasion and due to its important role for health and climate resilience, we will work on urban air quality data..
We invite you to participate in this open day if you are a person in charge of managing or designing air quality measures in cities, if you are a provider of air quality data or if you are a citizen or group committed to this problem and want to support the availability of scientific data for desicion making.
