Across the globe, the crops we grow for food and clothing are being treated with irrationally high levels of dangerous pesticides, at the cost of human and environmental health. Most of these pesticides are categorized as highly hazardous pesticides (HHPs) and are banned in many countries.
This course will teach you the issues of HHPs, their uses, their harmful impacts, and what role you can play to safeguard our future generations.
