VISIONSupport and enable solution-driven transdisciplinary research and action to improve understanding of how global and regional environmental changes can affect population health and health systems, and of effective and efficient solutions to maintain and improve planetary health and human well-being.
MISSIONEngage with health and other research communities, policy-makers, educators, civil society, media, industry, and donors, to advance planetary health/One Health/eco-health research and build capacity for generating, sharing and applying knowledge.
ACTIVITIESThe Health KAN activities are in line with the Visions and Missions and are strategic to bring transformation and innovation into society. They contribute to Future Earth Global Systemic Challenges and other focused activities in collaboration with Future Earth communities, such as Global Research Projects (GRPs), other KANs, and other research and non-research programmes. All in all, the activities are in line with the principles and strategies that link the scientific backbone with societal actions.
STEERING COMMITTEEThe Steering Committee develops, prioritizes, and executes agreed on the activities and objectives of the Health KAN. The Steering Committee regularly engages with other Members of the Knowledge-Action Network to develop, prioritize, and execute activities. The Steering Committee periodically informs other KAN stakeholders, including the Future Earth secretariat of its process (e.g. through the website). In principle, the Steering Committee consists of around 15 appointed members and officers that according to the needs of the KAN represent different regions, Future Earth subcommunities (e.g. Core Projects, FTIs, Clusters, Advisory Committee, Regional Centres and Offices and National Committees), subdisciplines, and sectors (academic, public, non-profit, and private). The Steering Committee aims for a balanced representation of geographies, disciplines, gender, and career stages. Transdisciplinary science expertise would be beneficial.
