Each year we consult with a growing number of NGOs and professional bodies to give yet more scope and energy to our advocacy work. You can read more about partnerships in our resources section.
HEAL also has ongoing collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Collaborative on Health and Environment (CHE).
HEAL is a member of the following expert groups and networks:
- Green 10, a group of leading environmental NGOs
- working at EU level
- Civil Society Contact Group
- International POPs Elimination Network (IPEN)
- EU Stakeholder Group on review of air policy
- EU Indoor air quality expert group
- EU Chemicals Agency (ECHA) Member State Committee, Management Board and Advisory Group on the dissemination of public information about chemical substances, and EU EDCs Strategy Ad hoc Group
- WHO European Environment and Health Task Force (EHTF)
- WHO European Working Group on Climate change and Health (HIC)
Through HEAL’s involvement in EU funded research projects APHEKOM, ESCAPE, SINPHONIE, ERA-ENVHEALTH, COPHES, we carry out two way communication from the science to the policy-makers, and from the policy level to the scientists in order to ensure a better uptake of scientific evidence in policymaking.
Finally, with the help of HEAL’s more than 70 members throughout Europe, many of which represent large network organisations of different specialist areas related to health and the environment, we develop policy positions and create consensus statements. Therefore, these represent a broad constituency and allow greater public interest engagement in discussions in EU institutions and international arena.
