Which pesticides are used in my School? (Survey)

At least one in every hundred cancers diagnosed each year in Europe may be directly related to pesticide exposure.

The Sick of Pesticides campaign provides information on pesticides and health issues, and gives a voice to those concerned about pesticide health hazards. It aims to put pressure on Governments to set up an ambitious National Action Plan for Pesticide Reduction and to support people and public bodies to rapidly reduce their dependence on pesticides.

This survey can be used to help gain a better understanding of pesticide (and biocide) use in schools so we can show governments why action is needed to reduce unnecessary risk.

This survey was originally developed as part of our UK campaign, to gain an understanding of the pesticide and biocide usage in the UK and lead to our report Pesticides - a toxic education?
