OVERVIEW

Climate change is the defining challenge of our time, inextricably linked to our health, environment, and communities. We all need clean air to breathe and water to drink, a fair and thriving economy, and a safe and secure country. Climate change and the pollution that causes it threaten all of that and more, putting the health and well-being of all Kansans at risk, hitting hardest those who can least afford it, while exacerbating racial, gender, and class inequality.

Climate + Health

Climate disruption impacts the lives, health, and economic well-being of Kansans. Climate change is a major public health concern in Kansas. Those least responsible will be the most impacted and least able to adapt. Solutions exist to build resilience, economic opportunities, and healthy communities. The Kansas Climate + Health Declaration aims to increase awareness of the impacts of climate change on public health, to increase civic engagement on climate action in Kansas, and to advance policies that build community resilience and safeguard the future of our state.
