Organized annually, the BC Lung Association's Air Quality and Health Workshop brings together air quality and environmental health experts and policymakers to share new insights regarding priority public health issues.
Marginalized communities are often disproportionately exposed to environmental hazards in comparison with the overall population. In response, the environmental justice movement has evolved, with a focus on equitable distribution of environmental benefits and burdens. The concept of environmental justice includes not only equal protection for all people under environmental laws, regulations, and policies, but also significant involvement of potentially impacted communities in environmental policy and natural resource development decisions.
This year, the BC Lung Air Quality & Health Workshop will examine the topic of environmental justice, with a focus on issues related to air quality and health.
