Community Meeting 7

Midwest Environmental Justice Through Action & Education

Friday, April 14th, 2023, 2-3:30 pm CT

In this session, we reviewed some of the key policy actions that community members and other stakeholders can take regarding climate change and health in the Midwest. Additionally, this session considered some of the primary environmental justice concerns that arise in the Midwest region. There was a focus on opportunities for action in the region, as well as practical applications and next steps for participants. Participants had the opportunity to reflect upon and discuss how these themes may be applied within education and community engagement practices. The presenting expert was Rachel Lookadoo the Director of Public Health Policy and the Water, Climate, and Health Program Faculty Fellow from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. We are collaborating with the American Geophysical Union GeoHealth Section to encourage collaboration between scientists and educators needed for environmental justice.
