Planetary health is the health and well-being of people and the planet's natural systems. This emerging field of applied research, policy, and practice presents an intentional and catalytic effort to take on one of the greatest challenges the world has faced in the Anthropocene. It seeks to characterize the impact of human-caused disruptions of Earth’s natural systems on our health and well-being, taking a solutions-oriented approach, bridging different disciplines and sectors, and learning from past successes and failures.
From October 31 - November 2, 2022, the Planetary Health Alliance hosted students, scientists, policymakers, civil-society, artists, private-sector representatives, and others to address these complex relationships, seek solutions, and build skills for action and change at the 5th Planetary Health Annual Meeting (in-person and virtually).
The Planetary Health Annual Meeting special issue on "Planetary Health: Building the Field and Growing the Movement” in Challenges is open now!
We encourage submissions anytime ahead of the conference, so that we have time to publish some beforehand, but this will remain open until 31 October 2023.
We are thrilled to announce that selected abstracts for last year's 2021 Planetary Health Annual Meeting have been published in The Lancet Planetary Health!
Thank you for joining us on October 31st after the the first day of the conference at the New England Aquarium!
