Movement Building and Activism

Join the Skills Lab

The Health for Future Skills Lab (in German) invites experts in different fields to take part in online workshops. In these workshops we learn skills for our volunteering work and we create connections between local groups, exchanging experiences concerning common challenges and working on joint strategies. The workshops facilitate the application of our acquired skills and help push for real change.

The Health for Future Skills Lab is open to those in the healthcare sector, who want to get active in the field of climate and environment protection.

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. 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.
