Our Planet Our Health

The WHO said that with the increase in diseases on a polluted planet, the organization will focus global attention on actions needed to keep humans and the planet healthy.

The World Health Organization specifically flagged unhealthy air and unhealthy food.

The world health body pointed out that COVID-19 Pandemic had highlighted the inequities in society and stressed the need to build sustainable well-being societies.

A well-being economy has human well-being, equity and ecological sustainability as its goals. These goals are translated into long-term investments, well-being budgets, social protection and legal and fiscal strategies. Breaking these cycles of destruction for the planet and human health requires legislative action, corporate reform and individuals to be supported and incentivized to make healthy choices.
