    National and city officials will launch t he World Health Organization and Climate and Clean Air Coalition's Breathe Life: Clean Air, Healthy Future campaign. This global campaign will raise awareness about air pollution as a threat to both public health and the climate. Indoor and outdoor air pollution kills 6 million people worldwide and contributes to global warming. A key nexus for action is cities. The Breathe Life campaign aims to mobilize and empower city leaders, individuals and the health and climate community to take action to reduce air pollution and climate emissions to improve human health today and in the future. Cities that commit to the Breathe Life campaign on the Urban Stage will showcase success and inspire others to act.
