A New Vision for Planetary Health

A powerful manifesto published in the Lancet on 10th March 2014.

When we can read such a revolutionary piece in one of the world's leading medical journals, we know that people and times are changing.

" A powerful social movement based on collective action at every level of society will deliver planetary health and, at the same time, support sustainable human development."

Dr.Richard Horton, Editor, The Lancet

We need a new vision of cooperative and democratic action at all levels of society and a new principle of planetism and wellbeing for every person on this Earth - a principle that asserts that we must conserve, sustain, and make resilient the planetary and human systems on which health depends by giving priority to the wellbeing of all. Together with empowered communities, we can confront entrenched interests and forces that jeopardise our future. A powerful social movement based on collective action at every level of society will deliver planetary health and, at the same time, support sustainable human development.
