Environmental mass incidents start with environmental risks and end with the elimination of environmental risks. There is a gap between the public's perception of environmental facility or project risks and the actual risks. This gap and the resulting choice of risk behaviors are crucial factors leading to the occurrence of environmental mass incidents. Based on the approach of enhancing environmental risk communication, a comprehensive strategy is proposed, including improving public participation in environmental public decision-making, strengthening the environmental risk communication platform, enhancing environmental science popularization and education, rebuilding the trust community of environmental risk communication, and strengthening the risk communication effectiveness of new media. These measures aim to reduce the public's cognitive bias towards environmental risks and contribute to more effective governance of environmental mass incidents.
