As climate and commercial threats intensify, a new WHO-UNICEF-Lancet Commission calls for a radical rethink on child and adolescent health. The report, “A Future for the World’s Children?,” finds that the health and future of every child and adolescent worldwide is under immediate threat from ecological degradation, climate change and exploitative marketing practices that push heavily processed fast food, sugary drinks, alcohol and tobacco at children. To protect children, the independent Commission authors call for a new global movement driven by and for children.
