Our Planet, Our Health

If our bodies are to be healthy, the planet must be healthy as well. Along with clean air, potable water, and nutritious food, an environment in balance offers countless other assets to human beings. Scientists tell us that time spent in natural environments can lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and shorten the recovery period that follows surgery. We also suspect that our forests hold as-yet undiscovered nutritional and pharmaceutical assets. As climate change unfolds, all of this will be transformed. How will we adjust? What are the integrated solutions to support both human and planetary health?
