Global Citizenship. Human rights. Equality. Equity.

PHC empowers people by providing knowledge that inspire, motivate, and challenge them to become global citizens. We do not rely on apocalyptic or doom-and-gloom storytelling—rather, we build narratives that encourage optimism and establish a knowledge culture.


Planetary Health Commission envisions a world with flourishing populations, shared prosperity and equality for all. We see a global community of empowered citizens working together for planetary wellness.


The mission of the Planetary Health Commission is to foster global citizenship with a human rights approach. We strive to empower students, faculty, staff and friends of Ryerson University to take leadership and action in their local and global communities. Our aim is to produce lasting social change, promote optimal health and protect diverse ecosystems around the globe.
