VIVO SANO presents action plan on public health and the environment
Scientists from all around the world gathered from 16th to 18th May at the Congress on Risks for Public Health and the Environment at the Polytechnic University in Madrid. This congress was organised by the European Environment Agency, ENSSER and Fundación Vivosano/Health Defense Organisation. HEAL was also a supporter of this conference.
Participants have developed an action plan with a series of requests to extend the European and national policy makers to increase protection of citizens from the interests of the industry. Experts have analysed several measures and considered their implementation as "urgent" in four major areas: chemicals, electromagnetic pollution, nanotechnology and GMOs. As a general demand, they are asking for more transparency on who finances risk assessments.
Several sessions of the congress are now available on video at:
