Keynote Address Planetary Health: Robert Verkerk PhD, Founder, Executive & Scientific Director, Alliance for Natural Health International, UK

07 Nov 2021
Planetary & Environmental Health
System failure’ may be one of the most concise descriptions that captures the current catastrophic decline in both planetary and human health. Accordingly, any unilateral or even limited technology-based interventions that intend to resolve environmental or human health crises, are unlikely to be enough on their own. System failure demands system-based solutions, ones that go well beyond the provision of new technologies. In his keynote, sustainability scientist Rob Verkerk PhD examines some of the systemic changes that are now needed to resolve the parallel crises we face, involving economic, political and social systems, including ways of encouraging sustainable changes in human behaviour. He will reference metrics that allow us to better measure our effects on these systems as well as considering the advantages and disadvantages of centralised and decentralised approaches. Finally, he will assert that the social, political and economic instability caused by the current pandemic may provide improved opportunities for such systemic change.
