Environmental laws, regulations, policies and programs are designed to protect the public from environmental hazards that negatively impact human health. After reviewing the instructions for the Unit 8 Assignment, choose an environmental health issue that is occurring in your community that you plan to address in your advocacy newsletter.
After choosing an issue, answer the following questions:
- What is the issue and why is it a problem? Provide statistics, research by local governmental and/or non-governmental agencies, information from news outlets, etc. to illustrate the problem.
- What actions, if any, is the community taking to address this issue? Are there laws, regulations, policies or programs that might be helpful in developing solutions?
In the peer replies, try sharing solutions with your peers that may help address their community’s problem.
