Eight-Part Webinar Series on Ecosystem Approaches to Health


Eight-Part Webinar Series on Ecosystem Approaches to Health

Discover innovative and dynamic approaches for better understanding the multiple factors that influence health – ecosystem approaches to health – with an experienced, pan-Canadian team. During this webinar series, you will learn methods for carrying out research and interventions on issues at the confluence of health, the environment and society.

This series is available to graduate students from all disciplines and also to professionals interested in these themes.

Objective. To provide participants with a working knowledge of ecosystem approaches to health, such that they can integrate the principles into their own work, as necessary.

Content. The main orientations of the Ecosystem Approach to health (complexity/systems thinking, transdisciplinarity, (ecosystem) sustainability, social and gender equity, participation, and knowledge to action). Activities will revolve around a theme, which, this year, is “Reciprocity.”

Format. There are two ways to participate:

  • as a student in one of the full credit graduate courses held at three Canadian universities, the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), the University of Guelph and the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC),
  • or as a participant in an 8-part webinar series.

The webinars are designed in collaboration with several Canadian universities and moderated by professors from a variety of disciplines and partners working in the field. It is possible to register for the full course at the participating universities, with credits transferred, or for the webinars only (not for credit, a certificate is provided).
