Developing the human ecology of health
The EHO (OES) participates in promoting transdisciplinarity to bring together areas that are often separated off from health, such as politics, economics, the environment, research and medicine, ethics, agriculture, society and quality of life.
After long months of lockdown for half the world, it is with a new-found sense of freedom that we wake up to a bright new day, slowly picking up the threads of where we left off. By taking on this new commitment, we show our responsible optimism for the future while continuing to stand together. Our goal of educating people in nutrition helps forge anew the link between people and nature, which is key to conserving biodiversity.
By promoting a healthy, sustainable, varied and balanced diet for all the world’s populations, we take care of people’s health and become more resilient to pandemics. The ongoing environmental emergency encourages us to think about the behavioural changes we need to make, and to ensure that our ways of producing and consuming are sustainable, responsible and fair. This will help us to conserve the natural resources that are crucial to all life.
We need to give ourselves this chance to build a simpler society where we take more responsibility, with respect for the diversity of all living things. Our existence depends on it.
