Abstract

Human occupations affect human health and well-being and, for the first time in history, human occupations are now affecting the health of planetary systems. As we enter the Anthropocene-a new epoch of geological time-it is timely to widen our field of vision to an occupational perspective on links between the health of people, places and planet, thereby enabling understanding of population health co-benefits from action on climate change and other environmental changes. There is an urgent need for a transition to ways of living that respond to, and are in tune with, the health needs of people and planetary systems. © 2014 The Journal of Occupational Science Incorporated.
