Environmental Health Literacy
Christina Zarcadoolas, PhD
Associate Professor, Department of Community and Preventive Medicine, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine
Environmental problems, conservation and planning are often not about nature as much as they are about humans and human behavior. Environmental literacy is the range of skills and abilities that enable people to understand the information needed to lessen environmental risk and take positive individual and corrective actions. Dr. Zarcadoolas will explain how environmental literacy enhances the ability of citizens to participate in environmental decision making.
