With support from Nice Côte d’Azur Metropole, the city of Nice and the Region Sud Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur

 

 

ENERGIES 2050, on behalf of the MOBILITAS project and its consortium, AtmoSud and the Regional Health Agency in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, with support from Nice Côte d’Azur Metropole, the city of Nice and the Region Sud Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, are pleased to invite you to their event on soft & active mobility and health which will take place in the Phoenix Park’s Linné room in Nice on Thursday 11th of July 2019.

 

The aim of this event, organised around thematic round tables, presentations and debates, will be for participants to get a better grasp on the impacts of atmospheric pollution on health and the climate system, to understand the urgent need to act on air quality and to explore the crucial role played by transport and mobility issues to improve our environment and our health. Specific territorial planning, alternatives to individual vehicles, financing mechanisms and concrete solutions at different scales and in different regions will be presented as examples. 

 

Come and discover actions implemented in Region SUD and in other Euro-Mediterranean territories (in Italy, Slovenia and other countries of the MOBILITAS project)!

A few words about the organisers

 

MOBILITAS (Mobility for nearly zero CO2 emissions in Mediterranean Tourism destinations) is a project co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Interreg-MED programme. It aims to promote low-carbon mobility in Mediterranean tourist areas, by adopting methodologies that can then be replicated on a larger scale. This project is coordinated by the Regional Development Centre of Koper in Slovenia and involves nine other partners from a total of seven Euro-Mediterranean countries (Slovenia, France, Italy, Croatia, Malta, Greece and Cyprus).

 

AtmoSud is the Air Quality Monitoring Observatory in Provence-Alpes Côte d'Azur. This observatory, approved by the French Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition, is an associative structure bringing together 4 groups of actors. AtmoSud is a member of the Atmo France federation. AtmoSud's missions are to assess the population's exposure to atmospheric pollutants, inform the population about daily air quality and in case of pollution peaks, raise awareness on behaviours that help to preserve air quality, and support local actors (government services, local authorities, industries) in actions to preserve and improve air quality, within an integrated air/climate/energy/health approach.

 

The Regional Health Agency in Provence-Alpes Côte d'Azur is a public administrative institution, under supervision of the French Ministry of Solidarities and Health, in charge of defining, leading and monitoring the regional project on health. The agency defines, schedules and ensures the implementation of regional health policies, including health issues related to the environment, in consultation with health stakeholders, elected officials and users of the health system, and taking into account regional specificities. In the second regional project on health 2018-2023, issues related to environmental change, i.e. climate change and the impacts of air pollution, are among the challenges to be met to preserve the health of current and future generations. The Regional Health Agency supports stakeholders in taking into account health issues at a very early stage, in all sectoral and spatial planning policies.
