SINCE April 2023, my team and I have been preparing for a global meeting on planetary health which was hosted in April 2024 at Sunway University, Malaysia.

For me, the summit was the moment when Malaysia came of age on the connection between the health of the planet and the health of its human and other inhabitants. Malaysia has set the bar for how others should be acting on the significant challenges we all face on the triple threat that confronts us all: climate, nature, and pollution.
