Nowadays news travel at an incredible speed and there is bad news everywhere because, yes, we are not taking care of the planet and our health as we should. What we know for sure is that humans are one of the main driving forces of environmental and health crises. Luckily, it’s not the situation we live in that defines us; it’s how we choose to deal with every situation. We can turn a blind eye and cover the sun with one finger, mi...

Development, poor urban planning, and the disappearance of green and open spaces for sports and leisure have also diminished our contact with nature. We have never been so in need of a healthy planet to ensure our own well-being and prosperity. Of course, all-natural elements affect us… so the most important question we should be asking ourselves is how does our environment affect us? Spending time outdoors makes us more mindfu...

The Rights of Nature is an intriguing idea that invites us to rethink our relationship with nature. We often talk about the importance of protecting the environment, but recognizing the rights of nature takes it to a whole new level. It's about acknowledging that nature has intrinsic value and deserves legal protection, just like any individual or community. Its goal is to balance benefits for human beings, ecosystems, and the plan...

Even though civilizations have always urbanized and made some part of their lives indoors, in the past three decades we have shifted the way societies settle, produce, consume, and interact which has triggered a massive disconnection from the natural world. For the first time in history, most people live in cities with the trend toward urbanization going up. Our education models, urban planning, and social values highlight achievem...

Food loss and waste is considered a global problem of economic, environmental, and social impact. On a global scale, 1.3 billion tons of food in good condition is thrown away. On one hand, more than 800 million people in the world go hungry every day and, yet every day we throw away perfectly edible food. On the other hand, uneaten food is the largest component of municipal solid waste, which decomposes and rots releasing greenhous...

Considering the current health crisis, it seems that living sick and fatigued has become our “new reality”. The number of people dealing with chronic or autoimmune conditions is on the rise and doctors cannot explain the root cause of certain conditions, so they are labeled as uncurable. However, we feel relieved because -at least- we have a name for each one of them. What is the culprit of this new set of mysterious diseases? ...

Healthy living soils are one of the most biodiverse ecosystems on the planet. Just a gram of healthy garden soil contains more microorganisms than there are people on Earth. Healthy soils have a huge effect on the human body and entire ecosystems: they are the foundation of human health and well-being, are great carbon sinks, and regulate hydrological processes. However, as the soil is a living organism, it can also die… every m...

“The Earth is our home. Unless we preserve the rest of life, as a sacred duty, we will be endangering ourselves by destroying the home in which we evolved, and on which we completely depend.” – Edward O. Wilson. The air we breathe, the food and water we eat and drink, the shelter we build, the clothes we wear, the goods we use, and the medicines we take – all these come from Earth’s rich and vast biological resources. However, w...

Since the beginning of human civilization, water has been a recurrent topic in different affairs including religion, science, medicine, philosophy, and poetry. Since the planet was formed, the amount of water has remained the same, this means that the water we use today is recycled water from millions of years ago. However, as human activities are diverting water to the ocean and polluting it, freshwater is becoming one of the scar...

CO2 is one of the greenhouse gases that keep the Earth's surface warm and cozy and has been present in the atmosphere since the planet was formed. About 2.5 billion years ago, plants developed the ability to photosynthesize which made CO2 concentration steadily drop until 30 million years ago when it stabilized at less than 300 molecules in every one million molecules of air (or 300 parts per million-ppm). However, during the ind...

Regarding the climate crisis, we are seeing increased stress -especially in young people- caused by worries about the future of the planet and our lives. Although some people might think of these concerns as being rooted in irrational fears, climate change is scientifically undeniable and a real risk to our survival, so it is rational to worry about it. This uneasiness has been named eco-anxiety and is generally used to explain n...

During the last 10,000 years, temperatures stabilized allowing the planet to be as we know it today. Around 1950 human activity and the exponential rise of human pressure on Earth started to become a game changer and a new geological epoch was born; in a single lifetime, we have warmed the Earth by more than one degree. Let’s deep dive into the story of how we got into this crisis, and what are the things YOU can do for your per...
