A shared transition towards a liveable future

Planetary Health

Planetary health is a (research) field and a social movement which promotes the collaboration between us - humans - and the planet we inhabit. It focuses on the interaction of our activities and the planet’s health which in turn affects our health.

Planetary Health initiatives and projects

There are many great initiatives in the Northern Netherlands relevant to planetary health  (although they may have different labels) created by various groups: research teams at academic institutions, societal organisations, communities, and citizens; with the goal to contribute to improving the health of our planet and the transition towards a liveable future for us all. At our kick-off event - Aletta Dive - on 2 November 2023, we met many and would like to share them with you. And more! We would like every initiative relating to planetary health to give a chance to be published here.

Do you not see your project or initiative here yet and do you want to be better discoverable for others working in the field? Fill in this simple form and we will add it on this website.
