About the Event

Join us for part -two of our  Climate Justice town hall meeting on the Mental Health Impacts of Environmental Pollution and Degradation. This crucial event aims to shed light on the often overlooked connection between environmental factors and mental health, and initiate discussions about necessary actions to address this pressing issue.

Scheduled from 10 am to 1 pm, this town hall meeting will feature breakout sessions, providing attendees with the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations and exchange ideas on various aspects related to climate justice and mental health. Our two guest speakers, experts in their respective fields, will deliver insightful addresses that delve into specific speaking topics.

Furthermore, our event will aim to gather preliminary data for the mayor's office, which can subsequently inform policy-making decisions and enhance the response to the mental health impacts of environmental pollution and degradation. We encourage participants to actively contribute to this data collection process by sharing personal experiences, insights, and recommendations during the breakout sessions.

Please join us for this vital Climate Justice town hall meeting, as together we pave the way for a sustainable future that prioritizes the mental well-being of all individuals. Register now and be a part of this transformative conversation.
