Children’s Environmental Health Day Proclamations: A Tool for Climate Action

By Rebecca Rehr

Children’s Environmental Health Day is the second Thursday of October, and is a great opportunity to amplify climate advocacy. In a special episode of Let’s Talk Climate, I sat down with Hannah Grose, Program Assistant at the Children’s Environmental Health Network to talk about Children’s Environmental Health Day Proclamations as tools for Climate Action.

CEH Day is an annual celebration of children’s environmental health successes and a day to raise the visibility of issues and challenges in the field. It’s also a day to drive collective action to address the big challenges facing our little ones. Children face increasing rates of chronic diseases, mental health challenges, and developmental concerns linked to environmental hazards and climate change, and children from lower-income communities and communities of color are placed at disproportionately higher risk due to environmental injustices and racism. It is time to place children at the center of our decision-making to protect their health and well-being, and that of future generations.
