Planetary Health Principles (Canmore Declaration):
Integrity and Unity
Countering elitism, social dominance and marginalization
Planetary health requires that we challenge status quos that oppress, exclude, and divide. Based on the ancestral concept of the unity of all life, planetary health means multi-stakeholder collaboration, plurality of perspectives, and compassion not only for other human beings, but nonhumans as well.
