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.
The 4th Planetary Health Annual Meeting aimed to bridge communities to achieve the Great Transition by highlighting collective planetary health values; showcasing change-making science, stories, solutions, and communities; and building systemic solutions across economics, governance, and civil society.
This virtual convening brought together 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. Simultaneous translation for the event was made available from English into French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin.
A CONFERENCE & FESTIVAL FOLLOWING EARTH WEEK
Like you, we believe that our care for the Earth shouldn't wane after Earth Day. That's why April 25-30, 2021 marked the first-ever Planetary Health Week to sustain the global momentum cultivated during Earth Week and highlight the health impacts of global environmental change.
We carefully co-created the 4th Planetary Health Annual Meeting (PHAM) to be a productive and exciting experience for both speakers and attendees. Technology allowed us to virtually host thousands of attendees for live panels, keynotes, and interviews using an interactive virtual platform, along with virtual spaces for research presentations, sponsor and artists booths, networking, and more. In addition to the core conference agenda, the Planetary Health Week festival celebrated artistic and cultural planetary health perspectives with showcases, performances, and workshops from around the globe!
