Climate and Health Champion Award recognition program
The Maricopa County Department of Public Health Office of Epidemiology is excited to announce that as a result from feedback from our Bridging Climate Change and Public Health meetings, we are launching a Climate and Health Champion Award recognition program. Winners will be announced in May 2018. The Climate and Health Champion Awards recognize local youth, individuals, businesses, and organizations that are taking steps toward implementing sustainable solutions, ecofriendly practices, or policies aimed at improving health and/or health equity (by eliminating economic or social barriers to health) that are at risk of climate-sensitive hazards. Recognition of these positive efforts is meant to spread information about successful interventions and to build community awareness and knowledge. Climate-sensitive hazards are exposures that we know put people's health at risk and are influenced by local- to global-scale climate change. We encourage consideration of risks that affect one group of people more than another. Examples of eligible projects might include water collection/distribution to address high summer temperatures, water conservation to address the potential for drought and water scarcity, school or community garden building, tree planting to increase shade or combat air pollution, community cleanup/beautification to encourage walking or biking, composting or recycling programs that reduce landfill trash, energy conservation, trip reduction programs, hybrid fleet programs, or assisting vulnerable populations (children and older adults, individuals with physical/cognitive impairment, individuals living in poverty, individuals experiencing homelessness, etc.) with adapting to climate change. If you are a climate and health champion or know someone who is, please visit http://bit.ly/climatehealthchampion to nominate them for a Climate and Health Champion Award. Nominations will be open until March 31, 2018. If you have any further questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
