Green Week partner event: Urban Vehicle Restrictions - How to achieve stakeholder support?

15 May 2019 London’s European Office, Rue du Trône 108, 1050

On Wednesday 15 May 2019, during the Green Week partner event: "Urban Vehicle Restrictions - How to achieve stakeholder support?", London and Brussels will each present their newest local schemes and debate on the health and social impacts of low emission zones based on the available scientific evidence supporting the implementation of urban low emission zones (LEZ).

To help improve air quality, cities across the EU are trying to introduce measures to diminish the pollution from the vehicles that circulate within them.

On Wednesday 15 May 2019, during the Green Week partner event: "Urban Vehicle Restrictions - How to achieve stakeholder support?", London and Brussels will each present their newest local schemes and debate with the European Commission, business and other stakeholders on the health and social impacts of low emission zones based on the available scientific evidence supporting the implementation of urban low emission zones (LEZ).

The aim of this debate is to outline how cities can communicate the health and environmental merits of low emission zones and therefore achieve stakeholder support.
