South African Hub
We are women leading planetary health solutions at the frontlines of development in the Global South.
Our mission is to bridge the gaps between environment and health policies through gender-transformative solutions.
We work to showcase the benefits of gender equality for sound environmental and public health policies, especially in low-and-middle-income countries. We are convinced that more inclusive and diverse decision-making processes can foster a cleaner environment, healthier lives and greater peace
By pioneering research, advocacy and training in a rapidly-expanding field, we are committed to providing innovative planetary health information for the South African context. As part of a global movement, we are proud to promote Planetary Health and gender-transformative solutions in South Africa with the help of visionary social eco-entrepreneurs.
We drive impact through collaborative, ethical and impactful research. With a vibrant team, we strengthen and inform the advocacy efforts of the global WLPH movement, equipping members to bring practical and evidence-based change to their communities. This will be done by distilling research into accessible formats that can be shared and distributed widely.
We provide training on Planetary Health research and Gender-transformative solutions to local networks in South Africa that are based upon well-researched, scalable, easily adaptable, and locally relevant course material.
We build and disseminate online courses on the emerging field of Planetary Health, emphasising how to mainstream gender equality for maximum impact.
