HEAL is only NGO representing the health sector in the task force and we have always advocated for better environment and better health in urban environments. Lately, we became member of the Advisory Board of the INHERIT project and we joined the Partnership on air quality, initiated by the Dutch Ministry of Environment in the framework of the EU Urban Agenda.
