Today’s children face an epidemic of chronic diseases and developmental disabilities linked to environmental exposures and our changing climate. It is imperative that we raise awareness and do whatever necessary to improve children's environmental health.
NEHA proudly stands with Children's Environmental Health Network (CEHN) in support of Children's Environmental Health Day (CEHD), taking place on October 11. Please join us in promoting and celebrating this very important day! There are many ways to get involved:
- Share your story to help build the CEH narrative and mobilize society to action for CEH Day.
- See what others across the country are doing for CEHD. If you are organizing an activity or event, post it on the activities map.
- Send your members of Congress a message about what children's environmental health issues matter the most to you.
- Encourage your local officials to support a clean environment and promote healthy children.
- Help promote CEH Day! Use #CEHDay and #ChildrenAtTheCenter on social media.
Thank you for your support!
