Pasadena Conference Center
Suwol Presentation, Wednesday December 5 from 2:00PM to 3:15PM in Room 211.
Title: Healthy Environment = Healthy Children
Creating health & safety through protective policies and legislation
Learn how California Safe Schools (CSS), a nationally celebrated children's environmental health and justice coalition founded in 1998, successfully spearheaded the most stringent schools pesticide use policy in the nation, Integrated Pest Management (IPM), at the Los Angeles Unified School District. IPM uses low risk methods to eradicate insects, weeds and other pests, eliminating a major source of indoor and outdoor pollution. It was the first in the United States to embrace the "Precautionary Principle" and "Right to Know" about pesticides used on school campuses. The policy led to the Healthy Schools Act 2000 and AB 405, which prohibited the use of experimental pesticides in California schools.
Today these policies have become models for school districts and communities internationally. Attendees will learn how to work with parents, teachers, community members, regulatory agencies, school staffs and local governments to implement IPM in their schools and districts.
