How to Plan for Health in the Long-Term in Light of Climate Change

By path2positive

The 2016 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting was recently held in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, and touched upon many issues surrounding climate change and sustainability. To ensure that health institutions are playing their part to shape a sustainable future, they will have to use resources wisely and invest in clean energy technologies. The below session at the forum focused on the long-term imperative that leaders have to preserve our future. Health leaders know what this really means: to preserve human health. Long-term planning can begin with short goals: using 5 year business plans as a guidepost to adapt to new technologies. Whatever the plan, first we have to begin by recognizing what is possible and what is impossible. Health leaders are coming together to prepare and be proactive about climate concerns.
