Day by day, destruction of the planet becomes more and more visible. Traces of plastic on rocks, in the ocean, and in the stomachs of fish and birds will probably be the biggest mark we will leave for posterity. These problems are inextricably linked to human rights and health issues. In a world that seems unable to stop pollution, can we expect innovations that will enable us to live long, full lives? "Por un medio ambiente sano" shows that these goals are possible if they're recognized on a global scale. As such, the work presents proposals and reflections from academics and human rights activists from around the world on how to mitigate climate change and environmental destruction; it also explores indigenous movements against climate change, as well as studies on industrial agriculture and extractivism.
