A vote for my child’s health - Please do not spray hazardous pesticides where my child eats, plays and learns
On 23 October 2007, the European Parliament voted on legislative proposals for a new pesticides policy package in first reading. Ahead of the vote, the Health & Environment Alliance and its Member organisations engaged in a series of initiatives to support better protection of human health and especially that of children and other vulnerable groups.
HEAL launched a postcard campaign urging MEPs to support a pesticide reform that will take the most dangerous pesticides off the market and make children’s spaces pesticide-free.
The campaign objectives were to share the scientific evidence on the negative health impacts to children’s health and to highlight what the European Parliament could do immediately to reverse this trend.
The postcard was successfully sent to Members of the European Parliament by patients’ and women’s groups, doctors’ associations, other health and environmental organizations and individual citizens from across the EU.
