Synopsis: From water quality to social inequality, from raising crops to rising temperatures, how we use natural resources affects our health and well-being. This highly-illustrated guide will help health promoters, educators, community leaders and ordinary people take charge of their communities' environmental health.
In small villages and large cities, A Community Guide to Environmental Health can provide tools, knowledge, and inspiration to begin transforming the global crisis in environmental health. This book contains activities to stimulate critical thinking and environmental change, dozens of stories of communities in action, and instructions for making simple technologies to purify water, clean without toxics, get rid of pests, and more.
Like all Hesperian books, this title was developed in consultation with organizations around the world, ensuring its appropriateness and usefulness for a variety of cultures and circumstances.
