DECIPHERING THE LINKS BETWEEN
ACCELERATING GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE
AND
HUMAN HEALTH
TO SUPPORT ROBUST POLICY MAKING
AND
PUBLIC EDUCATION AROUND THE WORLD.

Planetary health has been defined as “the health of human civilization and the state of the natural systems on which it depends”.

The Planetary Health Alliance is an alliance of universities, NGOs, and other organizations dedicated to coming together to increase our understanding of the human health impacts of accelerating global environmental change, to build an educational platform that enables teaching of planetary health topics in classrooms around the world, and to ensure that growing understanding of planetary health topics is applied to real world natural resource management and policy making. Ultimately, we envision a global public better educated about the connections between human health and our management of Earth’s natural systems as well as policy makers better positioned to calculate the human health costs or benefits of their resource management decisions.

We invite you to join us! Sign up for our mailing list and contact us to find out more about becoming a member of the alliance.
