On this website, you find a range of resources on education for sustainable development, developed by SHE and our partners. All resources that are represented here are speaking to a new vision of health that integrates health, environment and society as inseparably connected domains.
Oslo Medical Corpus
The Oslo Medical Corpus (OMC) is designed to support research-led educational programmes in modern medicine and global health delivered by SHE, as well as activities organized in collaboration with partners at the European University Alliance Circle U. It is also envisaged as a freely accessible resource from which the entire international academic community can benefit, especially students, researchers and clinicians faced with the requirement to incorporate sustainability values and principles into comprehensive medical decisions.
Climate and Health
Commissioned by SHE, students and teachers have collaborated to develop educational tools focused on climate and health. The objective of these tools is to facilitate discussions on sustainable healthcare concepts and practices. (Only in Norwegian)
Oslo SDG Initiative
Students for Choosing Wisely
This national student-run programme is supported by SHE in collaboration with the Norwegian Medical Association and their Choosing Wisely («Gjør Kloke Valg») campaign. The programme brings the students into dialogue about real-life sustainability dilemmas in clinical decision making, challenging their normative, systems-oriented and future oriented thinking skills as they engage with the full sustainability agenda for health. The programme consists of an educational part and a project assignment that is supervised by a senior researcher.
The One Health approach is necessary to effectively prevent, detect and respond to health challenges that arise at the interface between humans, animals and the environment.
Planetary Health is a social movement and interdisciplinary field that emphasizes finding solutions to the effects of human activity on Earth’s natural systems, with a particular focus on human health and all living beings on the planet. This field involves analyzing and addressing the impacts of human disruptions on Earth’s natural systems.
Eco-health is an emerging field (similar to planetary health) that studies the interactions between ecosystems on human health.
The World Health Organization (WHO)
The World Health Organization (WHO)offers several training packages for practitioners and students.
