The main goal of my teaching is to disseminate knowledge about natural ecosystems’ value for human health and wellbeing. Within this goal lies to stimulate thoughts about and inspire to further learning about the interaction between people and their surroundings and environmental health. The fundament for my teaching is my interest for how the environment affects health and that more insights in this are necessary for students in both public health and environmental management. I also hold a belief that this topic could play an important role also in the medical curriculum. This could, for example, have implications for developing sustainable health care.
