General Meeting
Jan 29, 2014

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
Warren, Michigan
Vallejo Smoke-Free Parks Ordinance
MISSION: to provide a vehicle for the community to learn about and improve environmental health factors in Vallejo.

VISION: to create a healthy environment for Vallejo kids and families where the negative impact of alcohol, tobacco, and unhealthy food products are minimized.
