ABSTRACT

Environmental health is the aspect of public health that is concerned with those forms of
life, substances, forces and conditions in the surroundings of man that may exert an
influence of human health and well-being. This definition includes other people as part
of a person’s surroundings that contribute to the status of environmental health.

The aim of environmental health education is to help students to achieve health by their
own actions and efforts; to make the environmental health a valued community asset; to
equip students with knowledge and skills that they can use to solve their environmental
health problems; and to promote the development of environmental health services.

The main goal is to present the frame for teaching staff and student’s team (in
gymnasium or high school) for the monitoring the impact of environmental health
factors and, contributing to the improving of teaching materials and methodologies and
to have a chance to use modern methodologies. The research in the field of detections of
some pollutants compounds (in air, water and soil) help us to relate them with the
diseases which caused from the different pollution factors. The students and teachers
have worked in the different groups, and so they have had benefit special learning,
teaching and research conditions. The teaching has included giving encouragement to
pupils to take positive action. One of the great contributions of the special program has
been the development of the concept of a complex system approach to the solution of
complex problems. Mechanisms to examine the events and their consequences have yet
to be established in any effective way. The environmental health education is an integral
part of the curriculum at every level and an essential element in the general education of
all students.
