The year 2023 is drawing to a close, and what a remarkable year it has been! As we bid farewell to the last 365 days, we reflect on the challenges we've overcome, the lessons we've learned, and the triumphs that have marked our journey.

  In the spirit of joy and togetherness, we extend heartfelt wishes to everyone around the globe. To those celebrating Christmas, may your homes be filled with the warmth of love and the joy of shared moments. For those reveling in the festive spirit of the holiday season, may these days be filled with laughter, gratitude, and the company of cherished friends and family.

   Are you passionate about environmental sustainability and public health? Do you want to be at the forefront of managing odour pollution and its adverse effects? Here's your chance to make a difference! We are thrilled to announce the launch of an innovative Cost Action initiative that addresses odour pollution through a multidisciplinary and participatory approach.

   Odour pollution is the second most common reason for citizen complaints across Europe, accounting for a significant 30% of grievances, right after noise pollution. Frequent exposure to odours has been associated with headaches, stress, respiratory problems, and other health issues. It also serves as an indicator of larger environmental challenges, including poor waste management and polluted water sources.

 The year 2022 is just coming to an end. We are about to close a wonderful year. The lockdowns look like they are over in most countries, and slowly, we are returning to our past, but with new ways of life and many lessons learned. This year has also come with fantastic news for the odour managers, and we will write about that in another post. 

  In this post, we just wanted to wish you merry Christmas if you are a Christian or a happy Holiday if you are enjoying these complimentary days in your country. We hope you enjoy these festivities with your family & friends, and we invite you to continue with us next year for more about odours here at
