People & Planet: Planetary Health

April 29, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


People & Planet: Planetary Health

Planetary Health is a rising educational framework and field that can lead the way. Propelled to prominence in 2015 by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Lancet, Planetary Health emphasizes  the interdependence of human health and the health of natural systems. The 12 cross-cutting principles of planetary health range from systems thinking to global citizenship – and give us the tools and framework to promote a sustainable future for all.

Join Teddie Potter, Director of Planetary Health for the University of Minnesota School of Nursing, and Cathy Jordan, Associate Director for Leadership & Education at the UMN Institute on the Environment and Research Director for the Children & Nature Network, for a conversation with IonE Communications Director Julie K. Hanus about:

  • How a planetary health perspective can serve us now 
  • What leaders and organizers can learn from the framework 
  • What children and young people can learn from the perspective
  • And why complexity can be a cause for hope
