Planetary Health is an interdisciplinary practice responding to interlocking crises at a systems-level. Planetary Health practioners aim to reconcile human-constructed social systems with Earth’s natural systems by centring health and justice for all species (including all humans), and by nurturing conditions for all life to flourish for all time.

By running projects, programs, and policies through lenses that address both socially-constructed systems and Earth's natural systems, we can:

  • advance systems-thinking and multi-solving in response to complex, interconnected crises 
  • implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP)
  • make complex decision making easier and more effective
  • address underlying causes of inequity, pollution, species extinction, global heating, declining mental & physical health
  • consider lifecycle impacts of decisions both locally and globally
  • centre health and justice for all people and health of the local and global environment
  • strengthen community resilience, drive down carbon pollution (and all pollutants), regenerate natural systems, improve health, equity, and wellness
