The objectives of the workshops are to familiarize participants with environmental health issues in an immigrant and visible minority context, to develop environmental health literacy, and to better integrate these issues into the participants’ lives and work. It contains suggestions to help create and lead workshops for school, community, and workplace groups interested in policy education and advocacy on environmental health and justice and primary prevention.
