The Generalitat Valenciana , with the collaboration of the European Project AIRUSE LIFE +, organises this meeting on the improvement of the air quality in urban areas. Measures being developed by Spanish cities such as Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia, in their plans to improve air quality, will be discussed.

English, Italian and Spanish experts will provide information on present plans (or under development) as well as on effective measures for the improvement of the quality of the air. Problems and current barriers will be discussed. Finally, there will be a work table on how to inform the population about the problem in question for greater social awareness.

The meeting will take place in different thematic tables and attendees can pose open questions.
