The Greening of Health: The Convergence of Health and Sustainability - IFTF Report
The Institute for the Future (IFTF) is an independent, nonprofit research group with over 40 years of forecasting experience. The core of their work is identifying emerging trends and discontinuities that will transform global society and the global marketplace.
IFTF recently announced the release of The Greening of Health: The Convergence of Health and Sustainability
Excerpts from this Report: "Many scientists and public health practitioners recognize that environmental conditions have a dramatic effect on health, but the general public has only recently come to understand that this causal relationship affects their day-to-day lives. IFTF research reveals that we are now learning to link our personal health not only to our immediate environments but also to the larger ecologies in which we live. We are beginning to relate the sustainability of the planet to the sustainability of our health as never before. At IFTF, we call this movement Green Health."
