Dr Virginia Pearson, Director of Public Health for Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, has published her annual report for 2019-2020, with a focus on planetary health.

In her introduction she talks about the relationship between people and the planet, how being kind to the planet is essential, and damaging the planet damages our health. It is a call to action to protect and re-connect with our planet. It was written before the pandemic and its publication delayed by it but it’s very relevant to what we have since learned from coronavirus about the connections between humans, ecosystems and the planet.

You can download the report from the Cornwall Council website.
