Call for Abstracts and Requests for Proposals for the Festival and Side Events are now open!

The University of São Paulo will host, for the first time in the Global South,  the 4th Planetary Health Annual Meeting 2021. The activities, organized in partnership with the Planetary Health Alliance, will be free of charge and virtual. To celebrate Earth Week 2021 and to close out the month of April 2021 with a continued commitment to our Earth and planetary health, we will have a full week of activities – Planetary Health Week – which includes the Planetary Health Annual Meeting and a Planetary Health Festival. Planetary Health Week will be April, 25-30, 2021.

The previous meetings were hosted, respectively, by Harvard University (2017), the University of Edimburgh (2018), and Stanford University (2019). This fourth Planetary Health Annual Meeting (PHAM 2021) will dive into the strategies needed to achieve planetary health for all. We will come together as a growing community of researchers, practitioners, policymakers, entrepreneurs, students, and more, to design actionable strategies to bridge communities to achieve the Great Transition.

Within the next few days, the international and Brazilian scientific communities are been called to send abstracts for the event through the meeting website: The deadline is January 6th.  More information is available at the website and also in the following PDF link: CALL FOR ABSTRACTS_ 2021PHAM_FINAL.

There are also two Requests for Proposals for activities to be presented during the Planetary Health Week. One is for Side Events, and the other for the Festival. The deadline for applications is January 23th.  Proposals for side events include workshops, panels, symposia, training, hands-on meetings, among others. The Festival RFP is related to artistic and cultural performances and events. All information is available on the following PDFs.
