Protect and Sustain our Health and Livelihoods
We believe that a healthy planet and healthy people are two sides of the same coin. The WHO stated, “Climate change is the greatest threat to global health in the 21st century.” This is why our Planetary Health Brick Collection is dedicated to helping medical schools protect and sustain our health and livelihoods through a comprehensive curriculum on planetary health. With this collection of Bricks, you can be sure that your medical students are prepared for the future.
"The health gains achieved in the past 50 years of global economic development could be reversed by 2050 due to the consequences of climate change."
