Rosa von Borries
Country of Origin: UK
Institution: London School of Hygiene Tropical Medicine
Rosa is a Public Health Master Student at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and an intercalating medical student from Berlin. She started her planetary health activities at her university in Berlin 3 years ago, where she realized that planetary health is a field that she was strongly passionate about. She believes that reinforced global inequalities due to environmental change and currently during the COVID-19 outbreak need to be put more in focus and tackled accordingly. As a Planetary Health Campus Ambassador, she is trying to create more awareness around topics such as how sustainable choices can impact public health, and to get more people in her community to involve themselves in planetary health activities.
