On Monday 23rd, the 74th UN General Assembly will set the agenda for the health of planet and people: The UN Secretary General’s Climate Summit will raise the ambition for climate action and the needed transition to a 1.5 degrees future. And the UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage, under the theme: “Moving Together to Build a Healthier World”, will call out the fact that health is a human right and no one should be left behind. On the same day, the UN Global Compact is organizing its Health is Everyone’s Business Side Event to make the case that the challenges facing humans, the environment and our planet are complex and interrelated. At the side event, we will take a look at the bigger picture in which these challenges sit, and we will call out ways in which business can cooperate to drive transformational systems change and deliver catalytic impact for a future where a healthy planet enables the health of people.
