To maximize accessibility, virtual access to the 2022 Planetary Health Annual Meeting is free. If it is financially feasible, the PHA would greatly appreciate if attendees select the Pay-What-You-Can Virtual Registration option as the funds we receive from our virtual audience help support the cost of bringing speakers and scholars to our conference.
WHAT IS PLANETARY HEALTH?
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.
You can learn more about the scientific field, social movement, and transdisciplinary framework that is planetary health at the Planetary Health Alliance’s website.
Achieving a world and new development paradigm where all people thrive by protecting and regenerating Earth’s natural systems for generations to come will take all of us. It requires a comprehensive shift in human activities across all sectors of society, and in our relationships with Nature and with each other—what we call the Great Transition.
WHAT’S THE THEME OF THE 5TH ANNUAL MEETING?
The theme of the 5th Planetary Health Annual Meeting is Building the Field and Growing the Movement.
All are invited to this hybrid (in-person and virtual) convening of 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!
WHO IS ORGANIZING THIS MEETING?
The Planetary Health Annual Meeting (PHAM) is hosted by the Planetary Health Alliance (PHA), based at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, MA, USA. We are co-creating the PHAM with our Program Committee to ensure an inclusive, productive, and exciting experience for speakers and attendees.
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
