Today, children face an epidemic of illness and chronic diseases linked to environmental exposures and our changing climate. As stated in the Blueprint for Protecting Children’s Environmental Health: An Urgent Call to Action, there is an urgent need to put children and families back into the forefront of our nation’s actions regarding health and environment.
We all must rally and work together to meet this need; to raise awareness and understanding about the critical issues facing our most precious resources; and to mobilize action. As a means to create a children’s environmental health movement and a strong network of advocates, CEHN has spearheaded the establishment of Children’s Environmental Health Day (CEH Day), to be celebrated every second Thursday of October during Children’s Health Month. The inaugural CEH Day was held on October 13, 2016.
