Health Promoting Schools

Anna Hughes, former Enviroschools Facilitator in Dunedin, has written a really great article in the March 2016 edition of the Health Promoting Schools newsletter. The article looks at the relationship and links between environmental sustainability and health – can we be healthy if we have an ‘unhealthy’ ecosystem? Please click here to download the newsletter and to read the article, and maybe take time to talk to your local sustainability educator to work with them to promote the health of both the people and the natural environment of your local ecosystem.
