Polish Smog Alarm
Polish Smog Alert is a countrywide, umbrella initiative bringing together various clean air movements and organisations active in different regions of Poland. We work to improve air quality in our country and to make it compliant with Polish and European regulations. We focus on promoting necessary regulatory reforms and financial instruments, raising public awareness and securing sufficient access to information on air quality. Most of all, we want to breath the air that is safe for our life and health.
