A Healthy People and Planet: From Action to Change

The management of natural resources is critical for planetary health – an emerging discipline focused on understanding the inextricable links between our environment and health. Deforestation, erosion, water scarcity, and climate change are just some of the mounting factors impacting our planet, and in turn, human health. Several scientific and multilateral reports this year have called for immediate action to implement policies and shift individual habits before it's too late. What can we as individuals do to make a difference and does it ultimately matter?

Copies of Tatiana Schlossberg's newest book, Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impact You Don't Know You Have, will be available for purchase.
