Better is possible when we understand that everything is a Green issue. Why? Because everything is connected.
We know that building back better homes, health, and work is an opportunity to progress social, environmental, economic AND climate justice. That’s why we can’t talk in sound bites. We need participatory conversations. That’s why we can’t isolate policies. We need a plan for systems change.
In this episode, we explored the link between health and the environment, as well as home and meaningful work.
Guests in this episode are activists who are making better happen in fields of work that are not obvious routes for change, by becoming advocates for systems change by getting involved in shaping the policies and plans which affect our work, homes and health.
If you agree that we need an equitable and regenerative economy so we can all lead meaningful lives in healthy and secure communities, please watch and share this conversation.
Better is possible. Let’s build it together.
