Environmental Health Matters Initiative (EHMI)

From the air we breathe to the water we drink, our health is defined by our natural environment. The environmental health field focuses on how environmental issues like air and water pollution affect our quality of life and the prevalence of various illnesses.

The environmental health problems we’re facing today aren’t simple. The solutions won’t be either.

We bring together leaders from various sectors to share their knowledge and insights on how to solve a wide array of environmental health challenges.

What We Do:

  1. Convene Experts: We provide our workshop participants with a neutral convening space where they can share ideas, form connections and partnerships, and leave better equipped to  innovate and develop environmental health solutions.
  2. Catalogue Opportunities: Our workshop participants discuss who should act, the challenges they face, and what actions those actors need to make positive change when it comes to a variety of environmental health issues. Following each workshop, we catalogue the opportunities discussed into our unique web-based platform that is succinct, easily searchable, and available to the public.
  3. Curate Scientific Resources: We curate the best expert-led environmental health resources and reports the Academies have to offer in one convenient location.

Why Us? The National Academies have a long history of working in the environmental health space and the unique ability to bring together top experts in science, engineering, and health.
