Building a pesticide free future - How to get involved in the Pesticide Action Week!

For several years HEAL has been an international supporting partner of the Pesticide Action Week which takes place annually across the globe. From 20 – 30 March 2013, the 8th edition will have a special focus on endocrine disrupting pesticides, and will aim at showcasing the growing alternatives to pesticides use through discussions, workshops, information stands, exhibitions etc. In 2012, 750 events took place in France and in 21 countries.

HEAL and its members will actively participate during this week including activities from RES, WECF and Generations Future and PAN Europe - more details on the partners of Pesticide Action Week here

Get involved! It’s easy!

Pesticides Action Week offers the perfect opportunity to become involved in the call to reduce pesticide use for better health protection. This international event aims to raise awareness on the health and environment risks of synthetic pesticides, highlight alternative solutions and build a global grassroots movement for a pesticide-free world. Each year local, national and international organisations join an ever expanding global movement.

Every single person, association, company, local government, teacher and other stakeholders are welcome to participate. Actions can be big or small ranging from 10 people visiting an organic garden to 500 people attending an international congress!

Be inspired to host or plan your own creative action to raise awareness on the health and environment risks of synthetic pesticides! You can register your event here
