Edited by John Rowley, founder and editor of People and the Planet magazine (1992-2000), this new website is a wonderful entry-point into all the issues which must be addressed if we are to create a healthy planet for healthy people. It takes an open, independent, balanced view of many topical and controversial issues and does so in a very accessible way. It is published by Planet 21, an independent non-profit company and a registered British charity, with sponsorship from UNFPA, IPPF, IUCN and WWF.
