Planetary Health Principle: Planetary consciousness (Canmore Declaration)

Planetary health requires commitment to self-awareness, cultural competency, and critical consciousness; to reduce the ways in which social, economic and political systems oppress groups and communities in different (and unequal) ways; to challenge contextual power hierarchies that block health equity; and to correct sources of misinformation that stand in the way of well-established personal, public and planetary health practices.

 

Guiding questions:
  • What are the interdisciplinary linkages between conservation and socio-economic status? How does economic improvement affect the effectiveness of deforestation reduction?
  • How are public health and economic stability affecting forest protection effort at present? Is the relationship static?
  • What forms of inequality are or would be undermining planetary health?
