This internship supported and contributed to the preparation of a new Canadian Public Health Association position paper on human and ecosystem health, as well as the production of associated communications tool box and online education modules, that were used to engage the Canadian public and political communities, and influence policy and action on the issue.
Global Change and Public Health: Addressing the Ecological Determinants of Health – http://www.cpha.ca/uploads/policy/edh-discussion_e.pdf
The future of life on Earth cannot be taken for granted as our species has the capacity to influence that future – for good or ill. This paper is not the definitive word on the topic of the ecological determinants of health. Its goal is to begin a conversation, stimulate debate and ultimately motivate the public health community to action.
