Welcome to this University of São Paulo (USP) Brazil and Planetary Health Alliance (PHA) global consultation for the São Paulo Declaration on Planetary Health. This Declaration will be co-created with participants of the 2021 Planetary Health Annual Meeting and serves as a call-to-action for the global community. The theme of the Annual Meeting is Planetary Health for All: Bridging Communities to Achieve the Great Transition. We seek your consultation on actions that planetary health stakeholders can take to achieve the Great Transition. This five-week exercise will conclude on June 1st and result in a final draft Declaration to be edited and then publicized worldwide.
We are inviting the 2021 Planetary Health Annual Meeting participants as well as the global planetary health community to contribute to this Declaration.
Planetary health science is clear: we can no longer safeguard human health into the future unless we change course. We need a fundamental shift in how we live on Earth, what we call the Great Transition. Achieving the Great Transition will require rapid, deep, structural change across most dimensions of human activity.
The São Paulo Declaration on Planetary Health will be the first document of its kind from the planetary health community outlining what actions are necessary to achieve the Great Transition. Every person, in every place, from every calling has a role to play in safeguarding the health of the planet and people for future generations.
Your contributions will outline what these roles are and serve as a call-to-action for the global community including policymakers, the private sector, and the public. The culmination of this Declaration will be published, shared with media, and used in partnership with other organizations throughout the critical ‘super year’ meetings that will lay the course for future environment and health agendas.
