A Healthy European Green Deal
COVID-19 hitched a ride on our globalized and highly mobile society to rapidly devastate populations. This crisis offers a global opportunity to leap forward instead of slipping back into the unsustainable and unhealthy ways of the past. A robust systemic response to the pandemic recovery can better equip us to face the climate emergency that threatens the health of people of all ages across the globe. The European Green Deal is a comprehensive road map striving to make the EU more resource-efficient and sustainable – and offers many opportunities to improve public health.
