.

In 2019, we reached out to Dr. Trevor Hancock to discuss ways to introduce the core ideas of ecological economics to public health practitioners and decision makers. Those discussions eventually took shape in the form of the interview published here. The overarching themes of this discussion concern respecting ecological limits and focusing policy and public health on achieving well-being for all.

As governments around the world, including the Canadian federal government, are thinking about ways to move beyond a narrow focus on economic growth toward the implementation of “well-being budgets” or “sustainable budgets” the ideas contained in this interview are timely to inform those reflections.
