Promoting environmental health in schools


Educational institutions are an essential source of information on environment and health matters, and they should be encouraged to include strong environmental health themes in their curricula. This will not only improve the quality of public input to decision-making in the short and medium terms, it will also have long-term benefits for environmental health in the future, through building up a population's "intelligence capital".
