The urgency and breadth of the environmental and health challenges addressed in planetary health call for diverse, extensive, and immediate solutions, which cannot be addressed by government policy alone. Enacting lasting change ultimately rests upon a revolution in human behavior – how we recognize and embrace our stewardship of the Earth. The evidence is mounting that changing our natural systems impacts our health, and these important findings must make their way from journals and intellectual discussions to the public arena.
This is where you come in. The Planetary Health Alliance calls upon volunteers from our community passionate about communications to help us build narratives in planetary health and issue them to the broader public. We are continuously building upon our extensive collection of research materials, and we urge you to explore it. Parse through our bibliography, connect with researchers at our convenings and online forums, read through our proposed guidelines, and see where and how you can craft stories to share with the world.
