 About the Forum
 
Increasing air pollution is a serious problem in Poland and in the world. It poses a threat to human health and life. Statistical data show that tens of thousands die every year in Poland due to air pollution. According to the NIK report, Poland has had the most polluted air in the entire European Union for years!
 
In turn, according to the analysis of the Chief Inspectorate for Environmental Protection, the state of air in the Małopolskie voivodship requires measures aimed at improving its quality, due to excessive sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide concentrations, especially high PM10 suspended particulate matter. The cause of air pollution in Krakow is, among others its unfavorable location, a large number of windless days and the construction of the city's ventilation channels. The problem is also insufficient information about the state of air pollution and the ways of its elimination. Therefore, it is necessary to undertake a wide open discussion by self-government authorities, scientists, experts and residents of Małopolska, the aim of which would be to make positive changes in thinking and make constructive decisions for air quality.
 
II Forum Green Smart City - the voice of science in the fight against smog - will be carried out in the form of discussion panels, preceded by introductory lectures. The moderator of the discussion will be Sławomir Mokrzycki from the Krakow TVP Center. Representatives of the voivodship authorities, the city of Krakow, municipalities of the Małopolska province, experts and scientists from Kraków's universities were invited to take part in it.
 
The first edition of the event gathered almost 400 participants (including starostas, mayors, commune heads, employees of Municipal Offices responsible for environmental protection and agriculture, activists for environmental protection, students, high school students) from all of Małopolska (poviats: Wadowice, Cracow, Suski, chrzanowski, nowosądecki, nowotarski, oświęcimski, wadowicki, tarnowski, limanowski, myślenicki, brzeski, bocheński, proszowicki, miechowski, wielicki, tatrzański).
 
The Forum is organized as part of the activities of the InnoTechKrak University Association - the first formal union of universities in Poland, created by AGH, Cracow University of Technology and University of Agriculture, whose goal is to strengthen the research and teaching potential of three Krakow universities.
