National Children’s Health and Climate Leadership Forum

By Rebecca Rehr

The National Children’s Health and Climate Leadership Forum will bring together more than 100 leaders from organizations dedicated to children's well-being for a day-long convening to increase awareness, inspire action, and build capacity and collaboration to address climate change and children's health. Hosted at the American Academy of Pediatrics headquarters on Earth Day (April 22, 2020), this invitation-only Forum will feature panels, presentations and working sessions focused on priorities and plans for solutions. 

"Pediatricians, parents and our communities today have an unprecedented opportunity to protect our children and grandchildren. Great challenges bring great opportunities. We can each protect the next generation by working together to prevent dangerous climate change, but to have a real impact we must act now. "

- Samantha Ahdoot, MD, FAAP, lead author of the AAP policy statement

Our partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics has resulted in several resources for pediatricians to act on climate in their practices, and lead with their peers. Watch our partnership video here to help answer, "How are the children?" We look forward to working with AAP to implement the recommendations that come out of the Children’s Forum and to inspire ambitious climate action throughout the year.

Partnership opportunities for the Forum are still available.
