Upcoming interactive webinar about planetary health education: June 13th + 22nd
View this email in your browser
Dear colleagues,

We are thrilled to announce an upcoming planetary health education webinar. We would love to have you participate!
The primary objective of this interactive webinar is to collectively identify a set of foundational “cross-cutting principles” for planetary health education to assist in anchoring and thereby strengthening emerging educational efforts in planetary health around the world. We envision that the cross-cutting principles brainstormed at this webinar and in additional discussion forums will serve as fodder for a commentary piece for publication, as well as support the continuous development of the PHA planetary health educational platform.

June 13th, 10am-12pm EST
June 22nd, 2pm-4pm EST

*Both sessions will be identical to accommodate different schedules and time zones.*

More information:

The novel technology, developed by MIT’s Media Lab, that will be used to facilitate this webinar (Unhangout) will enable large-scale, participant-driven online discussion of these cross-cutting principles. After initial remarks by the PHA Education Fellow Sara Stone, participants will be able to join breakout discussions via small group video chats for in-depth conversations and brainstorming.
