15NRHC Recommendation - 03/25/2019 - 14:46

Communities to establish place-based planetary health teams.
These could be led by First Nations people where possible, and guided by a range of health professionals, to enhance the health and wellbeing of people and their local, regional and global environment. Teams would learn together about planetary change affecting their own community, including climate change. Teams would develop community understanding and awareness about climate change and how to mitigate climate change through reducing emissions individually and at community, national and global levels; adaptation for both day to day and extreme weather impacts, and build community resilience and strength.
