In partnership with the School of Public Administration at the University of Victoria, Climate Caucus has been creating a Planetary Health Policy Tool for local policymakers.


We believe that 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 in the 21st century
  • respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Calls to Action and 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, declining mental & physical health, biodiversity loss, global heating
  • 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 wellbeing
Have a look at the Overview and please get in touch if you’re interested in participating in the pilot.
