PLANETARY HEALTH ANNUAL MEETING 2018

5 January 2018: Abstract submission deadline!

23 March 2018: Early Bird Registration Deadline! (extended)

Building on the successful inaugural Planetary Health Meeting in Boston, the goal of the second Planetary Health Annual Meeting in Edinburgh is to bring together new communities around the world to stimulate interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral collaboration towards ground-breaking solutions to major planetary health challenges. The objective is to examine how the health impacts of various global environmental changes manifest in regional settings and to highlight emerging responses to planetary health issues. The aim is to engage with researchers, policy makers, planners and local communities who experience these planetary health impacts to progress tailored policies built on action-focused research and innovations across sectors. The expectation is that, through gathering a diverse group in-person and via small regional satellite sessions, the global reach and perspective of the planetary health community will be expanded in pursuit of advancing planetary health solutions.

To catalyze innovative ideas among the disparate yet integrally related fields, The Lancet Planetary Health will publish a booklet of outstanding abstracts in planetary health research, in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Planetary Health Alliance. Researchers from any discipline relevant to planetary health are invited to submit an abstract of their research describing a recent study or a project currently in process that contributes to the gaps in knowledge, governance, and imagination as reported by the Rockefeller–Lancet Commission.
