APHA Accepting Applications: Student Champions for Climate Justice

 

Student Champions for Climate Justice Awards: Creating a Virtual Academic Community Experience

Many students have been outspoken in demanding climate justice training, and the APHA Center for Climate, Health and Equity hears you. That’s why the Center is proud to offer, for a second year, an opportunity for students to galvanize action on climate justice within and across academic communities.

The Center will award up to five college or university student groups with $500 each to create a Virtual Academic Community Experience during National Public Health Week (April 5-11, 2021). While the COVID-19 pandemic is keeping us physically apart, these Virtual Academic Community Experiences will spark an important dialogue on the connections between climate change and health inequities and inspire action.

Learn more and apply today! 

Don’t delay — the application deadline is March 1, 2021.

APHA’s Center for Climate, Health and Equity advances health equity and environmental justice through climate solutions. Increasing awareness of the health equity impacts of climate change among academic communities is essential to galvanizing action for the next generation of public health leaders.
