Moderator: Professor Margaret Barry, President of International Union of Health Promotion and Education

This workshop demonstrates new understandings and practice of planetary health promotion for all. Dr. Trevor Hancock, Mrs. Huti Watson, Prof. Dr. Claudia Meier Magistretti, and Dr. Jake Sallaway-Costello from the IUHPE Waiora Global Working Group on Planetary Health and Human Well-being and the IUHPE People-Planet-Health project, will encourage delegates to put the well-being of people and the planet at the heart of all decision-making, from the local to the global. This will emphasize the importance of engaging with indigenous worldviews and knowledge, celebrating and learning from these and related perspectives, skills, and values to promote planetary health and human well-being. “Glocal” community initiatives are showcased that develop work relationships between local initiatives of civic society and national as well as WHO policy development and implementation to provide solutions to planetary health -these include aspects like gender, circular economy and coherence.
