Health Justice and the Environment – the core issues
The latest instalment of our podcast series ‘Bridging the Gaps’ begins with an interview by David Somekh of the European Health Futures Forum of Tsvetelina Filipova, who is involved in All Policies for a Healthy Europe, an intersectoral initiative that brings together a diverse group of NGOs, think-thanks, associations, companies, and individuals. Tsvetelina is chairing the initiative’s environment group and she describes a report which the group has just published. David and Caroline Whyte then go on to interview Eloi Laurent, who is an economist based in Paris and a ‘convert’ to ecological economics. Eloi talks about the strong links between justice, a healthy environment and human health, and how the fight to reduce inequality is the best basis for environmental activism.
