Katharina is studying Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Before that, she completed medical school and foundational training in Germany. She believes that “the concept of planetary health, with its notion of ‘everything is connected’, provides us with the most all-encompassing way of thinking about (human) health- a way of thinking that perceives human wellbeing as being linked to the overall wellbeing and well- functioning of all other living and non-living systems around us.” She is convinced that society needs this “systems thinking” approach in order to reach the Sustainable Development Goals, which is why she wants to raise awareness and enhance knowledge about planetary health (especially among the next generation of Global Public Health professionals at LSHTM and beyond.)
