BY JAN 2ND, 2021

The theme of the conference will be Planetary Health for All: Bridging Communities to Achieve the Great Transition. Why? Because we understand that all voices need to be heard in order to ensure the planet, its natural systems, and all life thrives for generations to come. We are all part of the solution and therefore we need contributions from all parts of the globe to inspire our endeavor of Bridging Communities to Achieve the Great Transition. 


The Great Transition is a fundamental shift in how people and human systems – political, economic, and social – interact to shape the highest attainable standards for the health of humanity and the state of Earth’s natural systems. It will require a transition to a new set of values that incorporate diversity, equity and inclusion of all people as well as respect, appreciation and recognition that the health of people are dependent on Nature. 

We invite all interested parties to submit proposals for side events that they will organize and produce for Planetary Health Week.  The events can cover any topic related to Planetary Health. Look at the PHAM2021 program for inspiration and to consider the theme of each day when selecting the day for your event.
