October 11, 2018 was proclaimed the first Children’s Environmental Health (CEH) Day in New York State, in conjunction with the launch of the NYS Children’s Environmental Health Centers (NYSCHECK).

This is an archive of past Children’s Environmental Health Day presentations and celebrations.

2022 Art Showcase: Celebrate Children’s Environmental Health Day by sharing your vision

See the results of the Showcase.

Environmental health includes factors relating to clean air, water and food; chemicals in consumer products; healthy homes, schools, workplaces and neighborhoods; as well as energy, transportation and financial networks. Communities of color and communities with less wealth are disproportionally affected by adverse environmental health factors.

Our second Youth Symposium on Environmental and Climate Justice was held on October 12 from 5-6 pm.
