Courtney Howard: Healthy Planet, Healthy People

For too long we’ve put health and the environment in different boxes. The work of our generation is to bridge the two, to understand that in fact, they belong in the same box–that planetary health defines human health–and that as we improve one, we will improve the other as well.

Planetary Health and Personal Health are all connected as we are being shown around our world today. Our challenge is to use all our resources to save lives by treating Covid-19 like a sprint and Climate Change like a marathon. We can do both and come out of this with a prognosis for a much healthier civilization and planet. #fridaysforfuture
