Welcome to the Planetary Health Academy’s website!
The climate crisis is a medical emergency, but also a great opportunity for social change that will enable us to live a good and healthy life on a healthy planet.
The health sector and those working in this field play a central role in communicating, preventing and handle the effects of the climate crisis. Therefore, it is essential that the topic of planetary health is anchored in the education, training and further education of all health professions.
The Planetary Health Academy contributes to this by offering educational opportunities for doctors as well as trainees, students and employees of all health professions under the motto „from knowledge to transformative action“.
Our fourth round of the Planetary Health Academy lecture series is starting in November! The upcoming programme will be held in German – if you are interested you can register here.
For our English speaking community we still have many videos, information and additional material from our second and third lectures series. Additionally, we will soon provide videos from our first lecture series with an English translation. Stay tuned and check it out!
What is Planetary Health?
Planetary Health refers to the health of human civilization and the state of the natural systems on which it depends. It is an interdisciplinary field, encompassing multiple areas such as environmental science, medicine, public health, social sciences, and more.
Planetary Health focuses on the consequences of man-made ecological destruction – namely the loss of biodiversity, climate change, pollution, and change of land use. Planetary Health tries, at the same time, to find solutions to these problems that can help both humans and the environment thrive.
