The call for side event abstracts has closed. Notification of acceptance will be given by August 15th.

 

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. 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 will convene (in-person and virtually) with 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. The 2022 Planetary Health Annual Meeting will be held in person in Boston, Massachusetts and hosted online from October 31 - November 2, 2022. Virtual attendance options will be available.

Interested in attending the Annual Meeting? ​​Sign up to receive updates and registration information through our monthly newsletter here.
