Abstract

Environmental inequalities may be defined as the unequal impact of environmental influences on health and wellbeing. These environmental influences may include healthy early years/education/care settings, housing, public spaces, environmental planning, travel and transport, access to nature and environmental problems arising from unsustainable lifestyles and climate change such as poor air quality or increased heating costs.
