On the occasion of the Women Leaders for Planetary Health (WLPH) anniversary, we are pleased to host our 2nd Annual Summit under the theme "Leading for a Purpose: Planetary Health in a Digital Future“ in partnership with the University of Sao Paulo (USP) and Ripple.

This event is traditionally organized to unite top thinkers and doers from multiple backgrounds committed to gender equity to accelerate planetary health solutions, especially in the Global South.

In a co-creative spirit, the Summit is an invitation to learn and implement innovative solutions to ensure food security, biodiversity conservation, and climate action in a timely manner. With the fast depletion of vital resources that allow life on Earth, we are undermining the chances of future generations to inhabit our world in a healthy and sustainable way.

In this event, our goal is to explore how digitalization and emerging technologies, such as blockchain, can enhance planetary health policies while promoting equality and the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
