One Health is what it is all about today

One Health seminar on Feb, 7
One Health seminar on Feb, 7

When in February we presented our project’s results  during a One Health seminar at the Royal Academy and Academy Hassan II of Sciences and Techniques, we were starting to talk about the new coronavirus which had started to spread in Europe but the pandemic had not been declared yet. And today our project could not be more relevant: preventing diseases which emerge at the interface between humans, animals and their environment by protecting biodiversity, regenerating ecosystems and disseminating good practices about health prevention and the environment in local communities. If before coronaviruses epidemics were a remote concept to most people, we now know how such a new virus that has emerged at the interface Human/wildlife can affect the entire world. And these new viruses emerge and spread because we have converted ecosystems and degraded natural habitats to satisfy artificial needs for uniformization and globalization of our consuming habits, including food, bringing wildlife species into contacts that never existed before, and losing our resilience through these unsustainable lifestyles.

We are now preparing for the aftermath of the pandemic and end of the lock down period where our action will be more needed than ever: helping families to rebuild a livelihood centered around nature, protect their health and that of their children, teaching them health best practices and the value of biodiversity through One Health spaces in villages, developing village gardens of medicinal and aromatic plants to transfer environmental knowledge to new generations...

Please WATCH OUR VIDEO on the project page and help us prepare the after lockdown period by giving a donation.
