EUROPEAN UNION LEGAL REGULATION ON AIR QUALITY PROTECTION AND IMPROVEMENT
Nature and the environment are constantly evolving and constantly
changing. However, people's awareness of the conditions in which it finds herself is very low.
The right to a healthy environment, as a basic human right, is the key to the survival of the
living world around us. As such it is very interesting to study, not only because of its
complexity and intertwining with other spheres, but also because of the very way it originated.
Given this, it is very important to talk about respect, protection and promotion of the
environment as long-term goals introduced in the world international and regional
organizations. The need to create an appropriate system for control and protection of the
environment, originates and is a result of the rapid technical and technological development of
societies. The European Union has some of the best standards in the world for the protection
and promotion of environmental quality, as well as an appropriate legal framework that covers
many aspects of the natural environment. Of particular importance is the legal framework for
the promotion and development of quality air within the Union, as the danger, called pollution,
is growing daily and results in the destruction of ecosystems.
