Event Details

Press briefing: Health and environment report with EEA expert Catherine Ganzleben.

The EEA report ‘Healthy environment, healthy lives’ is the most comprehensive assessment of environment and climate-related health impacts in Europe. Air and noise pollution, the impacts of climate change such as heatwaves, and exposure to dangerous chemicals cause ill health in Europe. According to the report, poor quality environments contribute to 13 % of deaths. The report also shows how social deprivation, unhealthy behaviours and shifting demographics in Europe influence environmental health, with the most vulnerable hardest hit. The report underlines the complex links between the environment, our social systems, and our health, which the COVID-19 pandemic has also demonstrated.
