The 2021 Global Conference on Health & Climate Change

The 2021 Global Conference on Health & Climate Change on Nov. 6, 2022 was billed as the “most important and far-reaching summit on environmental health yet.” But was it? 

Pandemic-related labor shortages combined with supply chain disruptions are testing the resilience of the current system. Perhaps this is a silver lining to what has been a dark cloud over us all. An economic system deeply rooted in business as usual has no impetus to change unless extreme circumstances such as we are seeing now move it to do so. With ever present signs of global warming taking a foothold on our shores, never has it been so imperative to recalibrate the damaging economic system that no longer serves us and gives little thought to future generations. 

The World Health Organization called for global collaboration with the Paris Agreement as its fundamental focus. World governments, businesses, institutions and others convened in Glasgow, UK and virtually to create solutions related to addressing pollution, conserving nature, food production systems, sustainable infrastructure, clean energy, and the role of cities in addressing the underlying threat of climate change.

Re-Greening the Deserts

Gardening for Coral

We love good news about the ocean! We found this great story about the ‘coral gardeners’ who are successfully restoring and protecting some of the world’s coral reefs.

Meet the Author, Sheryl Davis

I believe that one of the best ways to promote the environmental health of the planet is to communicate sustainability values and practices to children and young people through books, activities, and projects. I try to do this with my own boys, and I hope my Daniel McFly series inspires you and the children in your lives to help care for our Earth.

Nerding out in the “permagarden”

Daniel McFly often geeks out about permaculture “stacking functions.” Can you figure out how each element of this permaculture garden supports other components?
