The 11th edition of Pesticide Action week taking place from 20 – 30 March 2016 will focus specifically on health. Many EDC-Free partners including the Generations Future as the organiser, are involved in this annual event.
Other important issues such as biodiversity, natural gardening, organic food, agricultural techniques, soils will be highlighted, but the main focus of communications to the public will be the impacts of pesticides including endocrine disrupting pesticides on health and what to do in order to promote alternatives for better health and well-being.
The “health focus” will be a good opportunity to put pressure on decision makers so that they implement real policies to reduce the use of pesticides to protect people.
The call for participation to the 11th edition is available online so you can download it here. Tools and communications will be available soon, but for now you can find out more information on the website here
