Collaborating for Healthy Environment and Climate Resiliency

REGISTER AT FL-iCAN.ORG

Across Florida local neighborhoods suffer environmental health impacts, especially in our most vulnerable communities. Climate resiliency includes everyone, but as Pope Francis notes, it has devastating effect among those living with impoverishment. We will explore various efforts linking healthy environments with climate resiliency and organize a statewide network of climate actions. All are welcome. Together we can make a healthy habitat for all.
