EHRA Academy 2022

EHRA 2022 Hybrid Academy

WHAT IS THE EHRA ACADEMY?

Which pollutants are residents of Metro-Detroit exposed to on a daily basis? Who monitors air and water pollution in the region? What policies exist to protect environmental health in Michigan? What can decision-makers do better to ensure we have clean air to breathe and water to drink? Can I monitor my air and water? Is there a role for me in this work? YES!

The EHRA 2022 academy is a project-based training opportunity for youth in Metro Detroit to gain fundamental knowledge and practice skills in community science, storytelling, and policy advocacy related to air pollution.
