IASS Tuesday Talks: „Planetary Health: Re-Imagining Human Health in the Anthropocene“

April 13, 2021um14:00 - 15:00

Nicole de Paula
„Planetary Health: Re-Imagining Human Health in the Anthropocene“

Abstract:The COVID-19 pandemic exposed multiple interconnected crises that put our health and well-being at risk. This talk explores how we can transition to a more resilient, fair and green post-pandemic era.  Planetary Health offers a new lens that allows us to see the world in a more colorful way. It values human health and well-being based on healthy ecosystems, the basis for life on Earth. Planetary Health, both as a scientific field and a social movement, is rapidly growing. While a range of research projects and initiatives is dynamically evolving, it remains to be further explored how Planetary Health can become an empowering narrative for policy-makers and business leaders. COVID-19, which has devastated economies and impoverished millions, needs to be viewed as a turning point. This dialogue presents key findings of the science behind Planetary Health and dwells on the opportunities to expand this field into actionable recommendations for decision-makers.

You can join the meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone.
