Within this volume, authors examine the impediments to the crucial goals of justice, safety, dignity, well-being, and meaning in children's lives, factors as varied as socioeconomic stressors, alienated, disengaged parents, and corrosive moral lessons from the media. The complex role of religious institutions in promoting and, in many cases, curtailing children's rights is analyzed, as are international efforts by advocates and policymakers to address major threats to children's development, including:
- War and natural disasters.
- Environmental toxins (e.g., malaria and lead poisoning).
- The child obesity epidemic.
- Gun violence.
- Child slavery and trafficking.
- Toxic elements in contemporary culture.
A Child's Right to a Healthy Environment is a powerful call to action for researchers and professionals in developmental, clinical child, school, and educational psychology as well as psychiatry, pediatrics, social work, general and special education, sociology, and other fields tasked with improving children's lives.

"In 2008, Loyola University's Center for the Rights of Children hosted a symposium on the rights of children with a focus on environmental health. ... The book brings together advocacy and academic content from the symposium topics contributed by experts in the field. ... This collection of symposium presentations ... to be more applicable to those in academia than to those in practice; however, all adults must carry the moral weight of respecting the worth and dignity of the rights of children." (Mardi Allen, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 56 (8), February, 2011)
