3rd International Symposium on Children's Environmental Health

Ministry of the Environment held "International Symposium on Children's Environmental Health" at Mita Conference hall in Tokyo on February 24th 2005.

The Ministry has already held two international symposiums to facilitate the exchange of information and development of human resources in various nations by inviting researchers and administrators from countries where measures to protect children's environmental health are already advanced and countries where efforts are being actively made.

For this year's symposium, we have invited experts and administrators from the USA, Sweden, Germany and Japan to report to us on their studies and other activities in a way that a wide range of people will be able to follow.
