Welcome to the Planetary Health Academy’s website!

The Planetary Health Academy offers diverse educational formats for knowledge acquisition and empowerment for transformative action in the context of Planetary Health.

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”.

The upcoming fifth edition will be held in German. As the previous lecture series we will dive into clinical aspects about Planetary Health beginning in May. We will soon update you on the programme and registration.

For our English speaking community we still have many videos, information and additional material from our first three lecture series to offer.

What is Planetary Health?

Planetary Health is an interdisciplinary field of research that brings together numerous disciplines such as environmental sciences, medicine, public health and social sciences. At its core is the idea that health is not only determined by individual parameters, such as age and gender, but is related to and dependent on surrounding factors such as the environment, socio-economic and cultural systems.

The educational formats of the Planetary Health Academy focus on the one hand on the consequences of the man-made destruction of the natural systems of our planet – especially the loss of biodiversity and the climate crisis. On the other hand, participants should be enabled to recognize possible solutions and to actively participate in a social transformation that enables a good life on a healthy planet.
