Book Launch: Health of People, Health of Planet and Our Responsibility
The Pontifical Academy of Sciences recently hosted a 2-hour virtual event to mark Springer’s open access publication of Health of People, Health of Planet, Our Responsibility.
This book resulted from the Pontifical Academy of Sciences 2017 workshop of the same name at the Vatican. The workshop was funded by UC San Diego Institute of Public Health, The World Health Organization, and The Miraglo Foundation. Speakers included climate and air pollution scientists, policy makers, faith leaders, politicians, Nobel laureates and physicians, including Miraglo treasurer, Mimi Guarneri, MD. Speakers addressed how climate change, if left unchecked, can become a human tragedy of immeasurable proportions, particularly to the poorest three billion people in the world.
As we are now learning from the global response to COVID-19, a refocus of climate change in terms of human health impacts may bring in massive public support for climate actions.
A Message from Rauni: Enlightening Ourselves at Summer Solstice, Juneteenth and Father’s Day 2020
In my native Finland, Summer Solstice—the longest day of the year and it is really long, the sun does not go down at all above the Arctic Circle —is considered the second most important holiday behind Christmas. We go to nature, cabins, boat, gather, and build bonfires. Legend says that on midsummer night any young woman who puts seven wildflowers under her pillow will dream of her future fiance. This celebration of the longest day of the year or Summer Solstice is an ancient practice in many different cultures. It is a celebration and connection to the light. In the spiritual tradition, we know that light always overcomes darkness.
