About Healthy Society

Healthy Society webpage takes its inspiration from the thoughts and actions of the innumerable people who are working towards creating positive and sustainable change through community initiatives.

As Rob Hopkins,  writer for The Guardian (UK), wrote in 2014:

When you think about it, virtually everything we need to do to create more resilient, lower-carbon communities would also help create cancer-free, healthier communities. Whether it’s creating community renewable energy companies, starting urban food production projects, promoting cycling, retrofitting homes, they all promote public health.

This site aims to provide awareness and stimulate discussion of topics which pertain to the creation of healthier and more inclusive communities.

Many of the posts are overtly political in nature, and there is no apology for this.  Politics impacts our daily lives in both subtle and obvious ways.  As Thomas Mann said:

“Everything is politics”.
