Special Issue Information
On behalf of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, we are organizing a Special Issue on “Global Plan of Action for Children's Health and the Environment”. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
The significance of children’s environmental health (CEH) is crucial for the overall development of children and has contributed to many research and intervention studies with children and youth.
However, as claimed by the Global Plan of Action for Children’s Health and the Environment (WHO), it is necessary to promote interventions on children’s health and the environment that should benefit and contribute to broader efforts aimed at the policy and investment changes required to reduce the environmental threats to health.
Therefore, this Special Issue of articles is children-centered and emphasizes links between children’s quality of life, health promotion, health education, nutrition, and physical and play activity in and outside educational settings.
We are interested in both research and review papers carried out with children and youth in all education levels and settings and in different social and economic conditions. Therefore, different theoretical and methodological approaches are also supported.
This Special Issue is open to the topic of “Global Plan of Action for Children's Health and the Environment”. The keywords listed below provide an outline of some of the possible areas of interest.
