One of the main responsibilities of city councils is to look after the health of their citizens, implementing actions aimed at reducing risk situations and, among them, preventing climate change and monitoring and improving the quality of the air we breathe.
The reduction of air pollution and the fight against climate change must not be delayed, given that air pollution in cities is already the fourth cause of premature death in the world, according to a report published by the World Bank last September, and that cities are also important emitters of greenhouse gases.
In the City Council we are working so that next year we have an Air Quality and Climate Change Plan that responds to these needs. Right now we are defining thirty proposals in collaboration with neighbourhood and social organisations, technicians, administrations, academic institutions, social and trade associations and collectives, trade unions, business organisations and political groups. At the same time, we want our neighbours to be able to get to know them.
Now is the time for you to tell us here how you think these measures would work in your street, in your neighbourhood, in your district.
