29 March ENSPx020: Environmental Issues and Tobacco Webinar


On 29 March at 17:00 CET, ENSP in collaboration with 020 is organising an event on the EU Green Deal. For our young generation, one of the most pressing environmental issues is the ability to maintain a sustainable lifestyle for everyone in Europe and beyond. While addressing general environmental issues and goals, this conference will bring to light the negative effects of smoking on the world we live in and tobacco’s contribution to pollution, along with the harm to public health.

In this event, we will combine the expertise of multiple organizations to discuss several important policy initiatives, such as the EU Green Deal and the sanctions placed on the Tobacco Industry, as well as the Single Use Plastics (SUP) directive, which is an EU ban on single-use plastic products. This conference will show the bigger picture and consider how tobacco control fits in the plan to achieve sustainable future.

The panelists are notable experts from the relevant fields: MEP Cristian Silviu Busoi, Chair of the ITRE Committee, representative of the Belgian Alliance for a Smoke-Free Society, Ms. Danielle Van Kalthout and Dr. Dumitru Sliviu Mihail, a medical expert from Marius Nasta Institute of Pneumology in Romania. The programme will also feature the presentations of Mr. Thomas Novotny, Professor Emeritus of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the San Diego University, and Ms. Azadeh Zarekar, an environmentalist who is working in Iran to raise awareness on the subject of the environmental impact of tobacco.

Join us on the day to understand the urgency of preventing pollution and bringing attention to the environmental crisis we all have shared responsibility for. In the end of the event, the floor will be open for questions from the audience and a discussion.
