What do we know about the quality of the air Europeans breathe every day when indoors, and how does it compare to WHO guidelines? What are some significant sources of air pollution indoors? Should policy focus on regulating these sources or setting emission standards?
While outdoor air quality has been regulated at the EU level for many years, indoor air quality remains largely outside the legislative framework despite people spending over 90% of their time indoors.
However, the quality of the air people breathe when indoors has been brought to the forefront of the public conversation during the pandemic. It is therefore important to utilise this momentum and drive the conversation further to develop EU policies and regulations.
This session will open the discussion for recommendations to tackle indoor air quality from a multidisciplinary, Health in All Policies perspective, as part of the drive to reimagine the built environment in a way that protects human and planetary health.
