Are you interested in getting involved beyond this lecture series? Here is how you can take action for a healthy planet and for healthy people:
Join the Skills Lab
The Health for Future Skills Lab 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.
Push for Planetary Health as a field of study at your university
For students from German-speaking countries
At our online event on “Establishing Planetary Health at Universities” students and lecturers report 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 email@example.com
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org – we would be very happy to support you.
Take part in discussion groups for reflection
On several occasions you will have the opportunity to reflect upon the lectures with other participants and to talk about concrete possibilities for action. Many local Health for Future groups offer local events for networking purposes.
