ASRI and Health In Harmony’s core values include the interdependence of human and environmental health, respect, and capacity building, all of which are on display in the ASRI staff and culture. Conservation, healthcare, and general management staff all start their day together in an egalitarian morning meeting where everyone has the opportunity to share ideas and challenges. We know from practicing Radical Listening that effective solutions come when everyone has a voice and is heard, and we reflect this in daily interactions among staff, patients, and community members.
Planetary health solutions need to be implemented in various scales and indeed begin with small daily choices. In this concluding module, we will explore concrete ways we can apply planetary health principles according to the resources and expertise we might have in our own community.
Planetary Health Principles (Canmore Declaration):
Personal commitment to shaping new normative behaviors
Simply learning about planetary health is not enough — we must translate the knowledge learnt from this course into action. This means integrating planetary health principles into our daily lives and even advocating for this integration into our professions and education systems.
Develop a plan for planetary health action and advocacy in your life, studies, and/or profession.
