Which environmental hazards most concern you?
Environmental hazards such as air pollution, radiation, or chemical agents, can have negative effects on peoples' health. We know that improving air quality in London for example is a top priority of the local government, but we don't know what the top priorities are of the general public.
At the MRC Centre for Environment and Health, we have an ambition to increase the quantity and quality of public involvement in our work. So to start this off, we invite you to tell us, and others, which environmental health hazards most concern you.
This opportunity is open to all, and we encourage you to share with others you know to help us reach a wide audience.
What will I be asked to do?
Through a series of polls, we would like you to vote on:
- The top three environmental health hazards that you are most concerned about, and therefore are most interested to hear more about; and
- How you would like to be kept informed.
Simply make your vote via the polls below, and if you have any other comments, please write them in the discussion box at the bottom or email them to [email protected]
Will I get anything for taking part?
By taking part in these polls, you will help us better understand the views of the public. This will help inform future topics and content that we share, as well as the activities we hope to plan.
Imperial College London is also looking to establish a public advisory network to support its current and future research on environmental health hazards. If you are interested in this research and would like to play a more involved part in shaping how we communicate our work, plan our activities and engage the public, then please click the button in the top right corner 'I want to join the public advisory network'.
Which environmental health hazard are you most interested in hearing about (first choice)?
Which other environmental health hazard are you interested in hearing about (second choice)?
Which other environmental health hazard are you interested in hearing about (third choice)?
What is your preferred way for us to keep you informed?
N.B. please select your first choice here, but feel free to make a note of all the ways that you would be happy to be kept informed, either in the Discussion section below or by emailing [email protected]
Our research at the MRC Centre for Environment and Health studies the health effects of pollutants and other potential environmental hazards that people are commonly exposed to, such as air and noise pollution and radiation (including from wireless communication devices).
We provide high quality scientific evidence that supports government and regulatory agencies to develop policies to reduce risk and improve public health.
The Centre is a partnership between Imperial College London and King’s College London, funded by the Medical Research Council. For more information on the Centre’s activities see www.environment-health.ac.uk/
