The health of the planet and the health of human communities are inextricably linked.
What is planetary health? Without a healthy biosphere there is no thriving human future. This emerging field of applied research, policy and practice represents an intentional and catalytic effort to take on one of the greatest challenges the world has faced. It seeks to characterize the impact on our health of human-caused disruptions of Earth’s natural systems, taking a solutions-oriented approach, bridging different disciplines and sectors, and learning from successes and failures.
