Why should you organise an event?

Since the start of the Healthy Lungs for Life campaign, thousands of people have attended events across Europe and the rest of the world.
Organisers have ensured that the important messages of the campaign are heard across the globe. It only takes one person to start the process of organising an event – that person could be you!

Apply for a grant to support your event

European Lung Foundation (ELF) offers grants to support Healthy Lungs for Life activities.

Not-for-profit organisations, patient groups and healthcare professionals can apply for a grant of up to €1,000 to support events and activities that meet one or more of the aims of the Healthy Lungs for Life campaign:

  • Increase knowledge of the impact of poor air quality on lung health and the actions that everyone can take to reduce air pollution and avoid exposure
  • Highlight the benefits of quitting smoking
  • Increase knowledge of the importance of physical activity for lung health
  • Raise awareness of vaccination to prevent lung infections

The grants could be used to produce materials or PR support to help with promotion of the event or other relevant tasks that help with the running of the event. Priority will be given to applications covering areas where there is a greater need for awareness of the importance of lung health and to low-resource settings.
