What's Good for the Planet and the Economy is Good for Health (With the Right Leadership)

March 22, 2007 - 12:00pm
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

For many of us, things just don't feel quite right.  We are using more land, water, energy, and natural resources. We get fatter, and the planet gets hotter.  Young people worry about the future, and older folks wonder what went wrong.  Is this all inevitable, or could a real synergy of health and how we create our environments produce better results?  Dr. Jackson will lay out health and environment data and propose ways that health and environment can reverse our course and create a sustainable future for our children.  He will show how the shaping of our built environment shapes our own well-being and our future, and how architects can lead major improvements in both the quality of our lives and the quality of our environments. For more information on this topic see Dr. Jackson's 03/09/07 editorial in the journal "Science" at: http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/reprint/315/5817/1337.pdf
