The ultimate aim of planetary health is flourishing
along every link in the person, places, and planet continuum.
In an era of so many interconnected challenges, there could not
be a more important time for ambitious, integrative, approaches.
“Twenty-twenty” has been a year of turmoil that has prompted deeper consideration of so many interrelated challenges. Acute events have exposed many chronic issues that have been neglected, unrecognized, or too difficult to overcome. But events that break the status quo can also provide new or accelerated opportunities for change, in all systems, that may not have been there before. Greater awareness and new perspectives can create new possibilities and galvanize action beyond merely recovering to the previous unhealthy state or situation.
In this way, the aftermath of “2020” can provide opportunities for positive post-traumatic growth, on a continuum towards flourishing—with benefits for people, places and planet. The emergence of “Planetary Health” as a collective vision has provided a clear imperative for this. But as with any growth, this needs to be nourished to reach its potential. And for that to occur we need to encourage deeper reflection, and re-appraisal of values, towards higher levels of environmental and social concern, greater self-awareness, and greater shared wisdom.
Against this backdrop, our agenda continues to underscore the imperative for creative ecological solutions for the challenges we face in all systems and all scales with advancing global urbanization in the digital age – for personal, environmental, economic and societal health alike. We aim to bring together diverse perspectives from across many dimensions of the arts and the sciences, as we explore novel solutions and new normative values.
We welcome submissions on any topic pertaining to improving health
