UNICEF Briefing: Supporting Healthy Environment for Healthy Children
Join us for this exclusive briefing for partners to explore the challenges that children are facing from environmental and pollution hazards across the globe.

Climate change and environmental degradation, including exposure to hazardous chemicals and waste, are deeply affecting the way that children grow and develop: 1.8 billion children under the age of 15 years breathe polluted air and one in three children have unacceptably high levels of lead in their blood.

Each year, more than 1 million children under five-years-old die as a result of pollution and toxic substances and the poorest and most marginalized children are disproportionately affected.

Hear from our teams on how we are measuring the risk and threats, and working to strengthen climate-smart health systems, including supporting health systems and ensuring health workers are skilled and equipped to respond to children affected by things like polluted air, lead contamination and extreme heat.

Come with us as we show how we are helping to adapt school and community protocols to ensure parents, caregivers, teachers and children are aware and equipped to protect themselves, and supporting and empowering young people to raise their voices in environmental action. All of this is supporting UNICEF working with governments and communities alike in setting standards, reporting data-driven risks and threats, to lead change to reduce the impact on children.
