ABOUT THE MEETING

Building the Field and Growing the Movement
WHAT IS PLANETARY HEALTH?
Planetary health is a transdisciplinary and solutions-oriented frame for understanding and addressing the greatest challenges of our time: the transformation and degradation of Earth's biodiversity and natural systems, and its interconnected impacts on human health and all life on our shared planet.
 
You can learn more about the scientific field, social movement, and transdisciplinary framework that is planetary health at the Planetary Health Alliance's website.
 
Achieving a world and new development paradigm where all people thrive by protecting and regenerating Earth’s natural systems for generations to come will take all of us. It requires a comprehensive shift in human activities across all sectors of society, and in our relationships with Nature and with each other—what we call the Great Transition (attend the PHAM to learn more about the GT!) 
WHAT'S THE THEME OF THE 5TH ANNUAL MEETING?

 

The theme of the 5th Planetary Health Annual Meeting is Building the Field and Growing the Movement. 
All are invited to this virtual convening of scientists, youth, policymakers, educators, private sector, artists, and more to learn about the complexities of planetary health science, find community, seek solutions, and build skills for action and change! 
WHO IS ORGANIZING THIS MEETING?

 

The 5th Planetary Health Annual Meeting (PHAM) is hosted by the Planetary Health Alliance in Boston, Massachusetts. We are carefully co-creating the 5th Planetary Health Annual Meeting (PHAM) to be a productive and exciting experience for both speakers and attendees. 
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
One of our core planetary health values is inclusivity, and we invite individuals of all backgrounds and disciplines to attend the conference. We encourage people from all walks of life to participate and hope to convene a large and diverse group of planetary health-minded individuals across disciplines, sectors, world views, geographies, and generations. 
Registration will open soon. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date on all announcements regarding the PHAM!
There are also other unique ways to participate, including submitting a scientific research poster (some of which will be selected to present Lightning Talks during the conference or be featured by The Lancet Planetary Health); showcasing your art; or leading a satellite session aligned with the conference or festival programming. More to come on this front! 
HOW CAN I SPONSOR?
 
Our goal is to make the Planetary Health Annual Meeting an inclusive and self-sustaining event, which requires the support of mission-aligned partners. We invite you to help us make this goal a reality.
Please email pha@harvard.edu if you are interested in supporting the PHAM in any capacity. We thank you in advance!
