In October 2021, the Environmental Health Matters Initiative (EHMI) organized the workshop Communities, Climate Change, and Health Equity—A New Vision, which provided an overview of how changing climate conditions exacerbate existing health inequities experienced by communities across the United States. The workshop identified a broad set of potential actions and actors that could lead efforts to address the intersection of climate change, health inequity and environmental injustice.
Given that much of the authority for addressing these issues rests at the individual state level, EHMI is organizing an additional workshop – the next in a series – from 12:00 - 3:00 PM ET on May 24 and 26, 2022.
This workshop will delve deeper into specific state-level actions and actors that could help improve climate-related health outcomes in disproportionately impacted communities, particularly through the deeper integration of health equity into climate programs and consideration of climate justice in public health programs.
Intended participants include representatives from: state agencies, legislatures, and governors’ offices; state consortiums; federal agencies and universities with programs that intersect state implementation; and community based organizations, state and national advocacy organizations, foundations, and private sector organizations that focus on action at the state level.
This workshop will take place on Tuesday, May 24, 2022 12:00 - 3:00 PM (ET) and Thursday, May 26, 2022 12:00 - 3:00 PM (ET). The workshop will be highly interactive and include breakouts for attendees to share lessons learned and discuss best practices. This workshop is public and free to attend. A recording of each session will be made available following the event.
