Focus on changing the settings and circumstances in which problems occur rather than solely focusing on changing individuals (i.e. policy change)
Broad-based coalitions that represent many points of views are ideal for policy change and can have considerable credibility
Policy change can:
1) provide a road to permanent social change
2) start community dialogue about issues
3) change minds, attitudes and norms in a long-term way
What is an "environmental strategy"?
Example: Youth, PD & Center Line Prevention Coalition
Vallejo Smoke-Free Parks Ordinance
MISSION: to provide a vehicle for the community to learn about and improve environmental health factors in Vallejo.
