Education Working Group

Aim : to plan and implement the integration of planetary health into education and training at all levels, from nursery school to professorships, from internships to the corporate boardroom, including developing and designing curricula and curriculum materials. A key facet of this is discussing the extent to which planetary health topics are integrated with rather than displacing or replacing, existing learning and training.

Research Working Group

Aim : the scientific dialog across disciplines is hampered by the use of different concepts, approaches, methods, and even social and cultural constructs. Sharing the personal experiences of embracing the PH approach may help to facilitate a mutual understanding and facilitate cross-disciplinary empathy and collaboration.
