July is Climate Change & Children’s Health Month

By Climate for Health

ecoAmerica and Climate for Health are joining the Children’s Environmental Health Network to put #ChildrenAtTheCenter. In January, CEHN launched a monthly education-to-action series as part of the Children’s Environmental Health Movement.  The origin of the CEH Movement, which also includes the celebration of Children’s Environmental Health Day on the second Thursday in October, is included in A Blueprint for Protecting Children’s Environmental Health: An Urgent Call to Action

 

 


#ChildrenAtTheCenter Goals:

  • Increase awareness and understanding of children’s environmental health among key audiences

  • Mobilize action on children’s environmental health issues

  • Establish/expand the community and network of partners working on children’s environmental health issues


July is Children’s Health and Climate Change Month.  Learn more about children’s unique vulnerabilities to climate change through our blog on CEHN’s website; ecoAmerica’s June Talking Points: Caring for Our Climate and Our Children; and the factsheet and recorded webinar, “Climate Changes Children’s Health,” created by the American Public Health Association, ecoAmerica, Climate for Health, and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Children are at risk from more frequent and intense storms, the spread of vector-borne illnesses, and extreme temperatures.  Fortunately, by acting now, we have the power to address climate change, and to protect the well-being of our children at the same time. Stay engaged by signing up for the Climate for Health newsletter and join the conversation about protecting children’s health by moving to 100% clean energy.
