In May 2005, concerned New Brunswickers started talking about ways to reduce children’s exposure to chemicals pollutants in air, water and soil. After several meetings and discussions, the Children’s Environmental Health Collaborative was created.
Today, this network includes over 300 people from nearly 100 agencies and organizations, representing government, non-government, academia, professional associations from the health, environment and education sectors. These concerned New Brunswickers want to make sure that children have healthy environments in which to live, learn and play. With expertise and experience available from many different agencies, participants build on each other’s strengths and work together toward the common goal of a healthy world for our children.
The work of the NB Children’s Environmental Health Collaborative is supported by the CEH Strategy for Action and is guided by six goals:
Support the Bill of Rights to Protect Children’s Health from Environmental Hazards
The New Brunswick Children’s Environmental Health Collaborative invites you to visit the Bill of Rights webpage and show your support for this initiative aiming to enhance protections to young children from pollutants and environmental hazards.
Learn, Take Action, Share!
Here are some ways you can participate: read up on children's environmental health, share information with your family, friends and colleagues, visit the CEH Facebook page, attend one of our conferences, or be an active part of the Collaborative by joining a team!
