Children’s Environment and Health Local Government Policy Awards: 2018 Showcase Now Available

The 2018 Showcase of the Children’s Environment and Health Local Government Policy Awards is now available to download here. The Winners’ Showcase acknowledges and celebrates the Local Governments who have embraced and included children in their decision making processes and have provided supportive environments for children and young people. The Showcase presents the details of the strategies for the winning Local Government of each category and demonstrates the innovation within their policies to address the health and wellbeing of children. These positive outcomes of the Local Government strategies encourage other Local Governments to integrate children’s environment and health into their policies.
