Get in touch with your local contact person
Groups that work together in the field of Planetary Health already exist at many universities and training centres in Germany. These groups are part of the Health for Future network. „Health for Future“ is an action forum for all members of the health sector, who are committed to an intact climate and ecosystem.
What if your city or university is not yet included? You are welcome to form a group of your own for your city. Just drop us an email to email@example.com – we would be very happy to support you.
Push for Planetary Health as a field of study at your university
At our online event on “Establishing Planetary Health at Universities” students and lecturers reported on experiences from universities, where an elective or other educational format has already been accredited or held. The following video is unfortunatly only available in German.
You can find the contribution by Michael Echinger (in German) here as a PDF.
If you want to establish an elective on Planetary Health and you need some advice or help, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
