Feel Good Friday-April 29, 2005
Women's Healthy Environments Network (WHEN)
As part of Grassroots Mama & Baby Month, the proceeds from Feel Good Friday on April 29 will benefit the Women's Health & Environments Network (WHEN) film project "If You Love Our Children: Children's Health and the Environment".
The film is a 53 minute educational documentary video about the complex web of connections between environmental degradation and its impact on children's health, while highlighting what community activists, health professionals and other citizens are doing to bring about personal, social, and policy change. It will be used widely as a resource in community, labour and health professional outreach, awareness and educational programs and for national television broadcasts.
WHEN is a non-governmental charitable organization that works with and educates various local community groups, parents, teachers, health professions, the general public, the media and policy makers to the fact that environmental health is a key determinant of public health. WHEN actively promotes the primary prevention of environmentally linked health conditions such as breast and other cancers, asthma, allergies, immune system related problems and the like by advocating the reduction of toxic emissions, a shift to safe production models, biological agriculture and lawn care; energy conservation, efficient, renewable energy sources; affordable public transportation; and more. WHEN was founded in 1994 and collaborates within many environmental health partnerships in Canada (and elsewhere).
