The pandemic has exposed our lack of resilience and preparation for severe global threats, caused by an outdated ideology that prioritises efficiency over wellbeing. This is just as true for Covid-19 as it is for the climate and nature crises, and we must learn from the former to prevent the longer-lasting and deeper impacts of the latter.

More fundamentally, Covid-19 has so clearly and cruelly demonstrated the inverse relationship between the health of our planet and the wellbeing of our societies. This issue explores how, if we want both, we must change what we value and commit to a genuinely green recovery.
