Celebrate Children’s Environmental Health Day by sharing your vision
What does a healthy community look like?
The NYS Children’s Environmental Health Centers were seeking creative people of all ages to share their visions of what a healthy community looks like as we move forward through the COVID-19 era.
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.
