A new, one-day conference will create a platform for a debate on how the global health and fitness industry can help tackle climate change.

Organised by David Minton, founder of The Leisure Database Company – in partnership with international best-selling author Daniel Lieberman and business psychologist Robert Kovach – the new Evolve conference will take place on 22 September.

"Given the urgent need to reduce demand for energy across the economy, the leisure and activity sector needs a decarbonisation plan with a deadline," David Minton said.

"Currently, we have no pledges to deliver this.

"As a result, we’re launching a new conference called Evolve to create a platform for debate.

"Evolve will be the Y Combinator for health, putting planetary health at the heart of personal health."

Minton announced the event in a wide-ranging article published in the current issue (8/2021) of HCM (which you can read here).

In it, Minton writes how the way people think about their own health and the future of the planet will see "planetary health at the heart of personal health for years to come".
