Women are more vulnerable to chemical exposures, and their key position within most families means that the dangers they encounter are more likely to affect not only themselves, but also their children and family. As the caretakers and gatekeepers of their families, they must evaluate risks every day.
This course introduces something called the “Precautionary Principle” that helps individuals and policymakers choose safer paths when information may be incomplete. It also explores the subject of environmental violence from a gender perspective, especially in the context of agroecology and pesticides. The information presented will help you make smarter, better choices about the products you use and consume.
This course is presented in Spanish with English subtitles. Additional materials — slides materials, quizzes, and so on — are in English. For the course entirely in Spanish, please visit our course catalog.
