The PHA is curating a collection of planetary health teaching materials to serve as a rich open-access and globally-accessible resource, designed to infuse existing disciplines with planetary health concepts and educate the next generation of planetary health scholars. This is a fundamentally collaborative effort to create a global good for planetary health education and input from international networks will produce materials that are contextually relevant around the world.
To facilitate the sharing of education resources, the Planetary Health Alliance is collecting information on ‘who is working on what, where‘ and populating a geographic map [link to home page map] so that educators around the world may connect with others working on similar projects. If you or your institution are involved in planetary health education, please let us know by filling out this this form or contacting: email@example.com.Please note that the utility of this thematic knowledge architecture is primarily structural; the field of planetary health explores the linkages and relationships between thematic areas.
Build your course
There are many ways to design your planetary health course. The goal of this section is to provide you with guidance and examples of how educators at institutions around the world have designed their courses, so that you are able to develop a rich and rigorous course for your own context.
Here are two examples of planetary health syllabi for courses taught at the undergraduate and postgraduate level.
- Harvard University Undergraduate Course 2018
- University of Toronto Dalla Lana School of Public Health Postgraduate Course 2017
Below you will find a step-by-step guide to support you in the design and development of your course in planetary health.
