George R. Lueddeke, is an educational advisor in higher and medical education and chairs the global One Health Education Task Force for the One Health Commission and the One Health Initiative. He has written several articles for the AHN website and his new book will be released on 18 September 2018.
This book highlights two of our greatest social problems: changing the way we relate to the planet and to each other, and confronting how we
use technology (dataism) for the benefit of humankind and the planet. Covering a wide range of key topics, including environmental
degradation, modern life, capitalism, robotics, financing of war (vs peace) and the pressing need to re-orient society toward a sustainable
future, the book contends that education is key to our survival. The author argues that One Health – recognising the fundamental
interconnections of people, animals, plants, the environment – needs to inform the UN-2030 Sustainable Development Goals and that working towards the adoption of a new mindset is essential: replacing our current view of limitless resources, exploitation, competition and
conflict with one that respects the sanctity of life and strives toward well-being for all, shared prosperity and social stability.
Clearly written, evidence-based and transdisciplinary, and including contributions from the World Bank, InterAction Council, Chatham
House, UNESCO, World Economic Forum, the Tripartite One Health Collaboration (FAO, OIE, WHO), One Health Commission, and more, this book cuts across sociopolitical, economic and environmental lines. It will be of great interest to practitioners, academics, policy-makers,
students, non-government agencies and the public at large in both developed and developing nations.
