The Climate and Health Nexus: Indigenous Planetary Health Lecture Description: A range of anthropogenic global environmental changes are contributing to an increasing global disease burden. Since human health and well-being are intimately associated with the health of our planet, health professionals and health systems will not only be charged with caring for this expanding disease burden, but will also need to become more environmentally sustainable in practice. This presentation will discuss Indigenous perspectives on planetary health and greater sustainability movements through a transdisciplinary lens.
