Emory University, Atlanta Georgia and Zoom
Our second annual Environmental Justice and Climate Protection Conference brings together community leaders, concerned citizens, elected officials, academics, and industry experts. Together we will break information silos through information sharing focused on identifying solutions to heal and improve the environmental health of all Georgians.
Attendees to this one-day conference receive solutions-oriented information on the dimensions of environmental health that impact Georgia residents. With sessions on environmental justice impacts, translating knowledge into action, and community coalition building, we will discuss, and more importantly, actively brainstorm, what community work can be done right now to move the needle on improving environmental health.
The event will be hosted by Science for Georgia, Dogwood Alliance, Center for Black Women’s Wellness (CBWW), and Emory’s Center for Children’s Health Assessment, Research Translation, and Combating Environmental Racism (CHARTER) on June 15th at Emory Rollins School of Public Health in Atlanta, and also be broadcast to our many online communities.
To spur people to action – CHARTER will set aside funding, specifically for partnerships formed during this conference, to explore pilot ideas related to Maternal/Child Environmental Health.
