Author Kate Raworth on a ‘concept for our times’

The idea of planetary boundaries is based on the theory that there are critical life-supporting systems that have kept Earth in the extraordinary delicately balanced and benevolent stable state for humanity.

For Kate Raworth, Senior Visiting Research Associate, Environmental Change Institute, Oxford University, and author of Doughnut Economics, it would be crazy to push the planet out of this balanced state without realizing what we are doing. For her, the planetary health concept is the first attempt to identify what the crucial processes are and where we as humans lie in relation to them.

Listen to Kate discuss planetary boudanries and planetary health, a concept for our times.
