Strengthening community-campus partnerships to address planetary health challenges
Reflections from emerging leaders
Universities do not adequately prepare learners to tackle planetary health challenges, including the intersecting crises of wealth inequality, racism, and climate change. Community-engaged education represents an opportunity to strengthen the critical consciousness of students and their sense of civic and planetary responsibility. In this chapter, the authors draw upon their learning experiences at McMaster University and beyond to develop a set of evidence-informed suggestions to embed planetary health-promoting, community-engaged learning opportunities in higher education institutions.
