Description

The need to protect and preserve the environment is increasing exponentially. A safe and healthier environment is paramount for human health and psychological wellbeing. Due to human activities such as the combustion of fossil fuel, cutting down of forests and more, significant negative environmental changes have led to climatic change. In this course, you will understand the relationship between human health and the environment and how the environment affects human health and wellbeing. We will show you the benefits of ‘living green’ and how to limit actions, tendencies and substances that can compromise the environment that causes human diseases. Explore the green products you can produce to help curb air, soil, water and other pollutants. Discover the various conditions that multiple types of pollution can cause.

Are you among those that have used the terms 'waste' and 'pollution' interchangeably? Understand the concept of pollution and waste and the difference between them. Waste disposal has severe environmental implications and can cause serious problems. Understanding the industry-level damage the environment endures because of waste can help solve waste issues. We will show you those that are harmful to human health and those that are not, as well as the types and classifications of waste. This course will also apprise you of the categories, sources and examples of pollutants that contribute to the natural world becoming toxic to human health.

Air pollution is caused by a chemical, physical or biological agent that alters the natural characteristics of the atmosphere to the detriment of human health. Household combustion devices and vehicles usually cause air pollutants. These contaminants change the climate, weather and temperature. We will examine the effect of a warm environment on human health and well-being and the concept of zoonotic disease. In the final section, you'll learn how waste can be treated, recycled and minimised. In addition, we research the solutions to air pollution and the treatment of water for reuse. We have designed this course for public health professionals and enthusiasts interested in protecting the environment and living green.
