Our MissionTackling the root causes of climate change and the nature crisis by producing research, campaigns and collective action that reconnect human and environmental health.

Our vision is a green and thriving planet where everyone can enjoy happy and healthy lives within the Earth’s limits.
Areas of WorkWe focus on issues where the connection between the health of people and our planet is most tangible. This allows us to show the deep interrelationship between the two and drive solutions that prioritise wellbeing for all.

Air pollution is the biggest environmental threat to people and planet. We are working to end the use of fossil fuels in urban areas and bring air pollution within World Health Organization limits.

Young people feel anxious about and disempowered to act on climate change. We are enabling young people to live sustainably by helping them play a central role in local and national policy-making, and through values-led learning in schools.

Excessive consumption and the marketing that drives it is killing the planet and making us miserable. We are working to curb overconsumption and helping business models to shift away from profit over planet.
