The concept of planetary health is broad reaching and aspirational, as exemplified by its stated definition, “the health of human civilization and the state of the natural systems on which it depends. It calls urgent attention to the extensive degradation of our planet for human advancement and aims to reverse this trend by better balancing human needs with the preservation of the Earth, thereby sustaining the health and well-being of future generations. To accomplish this, the concept also calls for a multidisciplinary, cross-sector, and transborder approach to change mindsets and behaviors at everylevel, from global to local.

If the planetary health community hopes to achieve these ambitious goals, then the concept of planetary health needs to quickly translate from a vast concept into a practical roadmap that guides decision making.
