Summary: This course discusses the interconnectedness between planetary health and human health and the importance of a holistic systems-wide approach towards regeneration. There is an increase in revelations around the impact of biodiversity loss, climate change and human health which is supported by data and research. By using scientific evidence supported by data and facts, it is important to understand the true connection between our ecosystems, climate, built environment and community.
