Planetary Health Network (PHN)

The Planetary Health Network is a group of LSHTM students, alumni and early career researchers. We are supported by the Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health and form part of its membership.

We aim to:

  • Promote engagement in planetary health research and evidence within LSHTM communities
  • Connect and collaborate with current and future leaders in climate change and planetary health
  • Work in partnership with LSHTM to promote evidence-based and feasible actions to increase school sustainability

We organise social activities and events at the School, send a weekly news bulletin through our email list, and run a platform for members to share planetary health news, chat and community. Join us!
