Title: How pollution and climate change affect children’s health and well-being
Organizers: UNICEF and the Centre for Global Health Inequalities Research (CHAIN)
Description: Children today face a new set of challenges that were unimaginable just a generation ago. Across the world, climate change and environmental degradation are threatening child survival, health, and well-being. It’s critical to scale up interventions to ensure a healthy environment for all children, especially for those that are the most vulnerable.
Action on climate change and environmental degradation - taken for children and with them – is a UNICEF priority. The right to a healthy environment underpins the rights of all children not only to survive but to thrive and live in dignity.
In this webinar we gather experts from Norwegian Institute of Public Health, CHAIN and UNICEF. How can we challenge and learn from each other? How can Norway best contribute to understanding children’s environmental risks? How can the research community and experts work together with UN organizations and civil society?
