Promoting public education on health effects of climate change

A systematic approach to environmental education, communication and information transfer can bridge the gaps between professionals, policy-makers and citizens. In addition, formal education programmes for schoolchildren can be coupled in a complementary way with information addressed to the wider public to improve knowledge, raise awareness, question attitudes and lead to voluntary changes in the behaviour of individuals, households and firms.
